oh, sorry my post says same deal havent been to a doc. i meant this time i hadnt been to the doctor yet...sorry for not bieng more clear
hey i appreciate everything guys, I think it may be a bit stress related I have also seen the doc before about this stuff had ekg's ran and ct scans, always showing normal. the thing that bothered me was that this stuff usually every couple months only happens like 3 beats in a row. last monday i woke up and it did it for a week!!! garh!!! lol it does seem to have died down a bit havent had it in a couple days. I do appreciate all the help everyone has given and advice! i will be around to help anyone with things I know a little about such as anxiety and things of that nature!!
thanks- god bless- jackson
You are quite right, it is nobody else's choice and if you don't hear concern in my posts, I am sorry about that. I am a healthcare professional and the first thing we must tell you is to get checked by a doctor. It would be irresponsible for any of us to tell someone everything is okay if they do not see a doctor first. I also do not remember every post and if you said you've seen a doctor already, sorry. I just like to make sure we are all on the same page. Once that is established, we have tons of advice!
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, actually i've seen my doc b4 and he said NOTHING was wrong. i saw my school nurse, she also said NOTHING was wrong.is all i am trying to get at is that IF it TRULY bothers him and it gives him problems he can go see NOW,but if not he CAN go at a yearly physical..............its his choice,not ANYONE elses...
Of COURSE you should start with a doctor's consult. That doesn't mean an ER trip, but you must be sure your heart is structurally normal because, if it isn't, these have a different meaning! And, AJWWR82, I believe I mentioned this to you once. PLUS with your pain, you should make sure everything is okay first. THEN you can join the ranks of us who talk each other through everything.
Concur with fellow members a consult with your GP wise. My experieince is stress is a trigger however other imbalances in nutrients and minerals play a role too. Electrolytes are key along with general hydration( i.e. getting enough good fluids), as is lowering alchohol and other stimulants like coffee etc... and aerobic exercise like walking or light running for 45-60 minutes 4-5 times a week. This was a big help. Ultimately, GERD plays a role as well, your GP can explain.
Best of luck
Whether it is your regular GP or a cardiologist, I feel your case should be discussed with a professional.
So many of us in this forum have those pesky extra beats, and they scare us, it is only normal. However, I feel most of us have also talked to our docs about them. So, even though we have been told by our tests and docs that we are fine, we still worry, but, at least we know basically, we are OK, LOL, there are times, however, when I really wonder if I am ok, I get so panicky when I have even one. I know anxiety, for me at any rate, keeps them fueled.
Let us know how your doctor visit goes.
Hey there,most of us suffer from these extra beats..they are a pain in the neck!Once you go see a dr and he runs whatever tests he feels you should have, you will feel a whole lot more comfortable!Yes these beats still give me anxiety but it feels a little better to know they arent going to harm me!By the way,im on a medium dose beta blocker for high blood pressure,and I still get the extra beats.
Clearly you cases should be discussed with a doctor, maybe just you general/family doctor to get his/her take. They my run an EKG and give you some direct action to take, e.g., medication.
In any case, talk to the doc.
yes sleep is affected with these....and here are a couple ways i think you'll find helpful:ok if you have to get up early for job,school,etc. try to get ur doc to prescribe you a beta blocker,definetely helps. if you have a day where you dont have to get early, take your time to get to bed,watch tv or read a magazine or somethin for about 1/2 hour but do not once think about them, and you will sleep like a baby. ok just add me as a friend send me a message or w/e if u have a question or somethin, sweet dreams,lol : )
no, i cant say that i ever have chest pain or tightness. It's more less just really annoying and ticks me off when im trying to get to sleep. keeps my brain working trying to figure out what it is and makes me a bit awry or restless when trying to fall asleep.
hey whats up? im only 13 and these things got me too. i havent been to the doctor and ive had them for probably 5 months. im like you, i dont wanna go to the er or anything,lol. im sure the alchohol and the monsters had a little something to do with it. see i drank five cans of mountain dew at once (54 mg caffiene per can/so i had 270 mg in all) then went and played football thats when they started. it sounds to me that ur fine, and im not ever prob gonna go to the doc for these unless they start to hurt or i pass out. but i have a question...did u used to get pretty bad chest pain before the skipped heart beats started? cuz i noticed a lot of people,including me, had this happen to them too.
but anyway, if ur really worried go see ur doc, no need to rush and call 911. anyway good luck and hope everything goes well :)
