What can I do to calm ectopic beats?


Iv`e always been prone to ectopic beats. Iv`e had tests on my heart which have ruled out any disease, but sometimes I`m getting so many of these ectopic beats I feel as if there`s a mexican jumping bean in my chest. It`s very uncomfortable & annoying. Is there anything that I can do to calm things down without resorting to medication?

Hi hairfairy, have you identified any triggers for your ectopic beats? Caffeine, alcohol and other medications may each be contributing factors. Keep a note of when you experience an ectopic beat, this might help you to tie down any triggers for sharing and discussion with your GP. Thanks


Possible triggers cold be : stress , heavy meals , some kind of food , long discussions , flue , infections , hormones , sleeping after having a meal , some medication specially treating flue and cold

If it is becoming worse contact your doctor for monitoring and diagnoses
