I'm a 33 year old female and have been experiencing ectopic heartbeats every day for the last 2 years. I have had all the tests done except an echo of which I am on the waiting list for. Lots of ectopics were picked up on my 24 hr tape. The consultant said that I just have to live with them. I am trying to but am worried that I may also have more a more sinister arrhythmia than what has been recorded durIng that period. I have flutters that feel different to the ectopic beats. I like to run and am worried that I may go into sudden cardiac arrest. Plus I feel very guilty because I went on a crash diet a few years ago and perhaps the problems are due to an electrolyte imbalance at this time. If anyone has a similar experience I'd love to hear from you. They are ruining my life and.every night I have to go to sleep feeling my irregular heart beat. It is so distracting and worrying.
