Can you tell me if it is true that if you have a normal heart (with some slight regurtiation which they told me was fine) that skipped beats are benign. I have had an echo, stress test, holters and even a King of Hearts monitor for 30 days and all that is found on it is some triplet premature ventricular contractions and triplet premature atril contractions - sounded a little concerning to me! I believe they recorded around 100 single premature atrial and ventricular beats of each and then the triplets and couplets of some of the others. I am a little concerned about these finding but I seem to be the only one concerned as the heart doctor is not at all. When a person dies from irregular heartbeats is it always because they have something structurally wrong with their heart or could these beats actually kill you. I am one of the unfortunate ones that feels every single irregularity in my heart beat. My family physcian says I am great health and not to worry as well but that is not quite a easily done when I feel these strange sensations every day.
