Hi I'm 36 yrs old and have a haert palpatation. I may have had them for along time because I don't notice them unless I take my pulse. some times when I take my pulse every 30 beats it will skip one then have one then skip not always . I noticed them amonth ago I wastaking clartond then took anoter medicine for alliges with it. this made my heart beet faster and made me notice the palpatations I went to the emergence room they monitered my heart ekg for around 3 hours took my blood and told me They found no problems you could see palpatations on ekg. I'm still having them other than knowing about them no symptoms is this normal or should I be worried even if ekg showed nothing during palpatations
It is normal to have "skipped" or "extra" beats from time to time. Usually these are nothing to worry about but if they are a concern to you your doctor may want to perform additional testing such as a Holter monitor test.
