Hi I'm new to this group. I am in my 60s and have had irregular Heart beats for the last 3 years or more. They have started getting more frequent lately and I can't work out what triggers them. I am aware of my heart thumping irregularly in my chest and have ectopic beats which really thump. The Dr says if there is no pain or breathlessness then don't worry!! I think they are making me panic a bit which of course makes it worse !! Any suggestions on how to cope with them ?
