will these ectopic beats, palpitations and flutters kill me

Posted , 3 users are following.

HI all

I have been having ectopic beats for about a year now, ive has 2 ECG's, the last one about 9 months ago and that was normal (did have a pulse of 89BPM).

I have also had an omron monitor wich showed up nothing.

I am waiting the results of a 6 days holter monitior.

The last few days i have awful ectopics (skipped beats), flutters in chest and throat, a feel of unease and dizzyness.

Whats could be causing them? could i have heart diseas or arrythmia?

i am sooo scared im going to die and my heart will just stop

    Actually extra beats, palpitations fibrillation and or a flutter are fairly common, stay with your doctors, sounds like they are searching for anything out of the way. Normally these are not significant issues and a lot of us live quite normal with some fairly significant arrhythmias.  Maybe avoid caffeine for awhile? Be well...

    No need to fear . My  father  have been diagnosed with AF since ten years ago , and do extremely well with digoxin 0.25 micro and metoprolol  twice daily  plus regular bicycling . Holtor monitor was a good option.

    Trust your doctor.

    This is almost impossible that  it doesnt show any abnormality  , except for when the patient's problem is a psychotic one . Then you must use Trasodone.
