Are all cases of irregular heart beat serious?
I am slightly over weight, I am taking Cerazzette (POP)contraceptive pill and I am 24 years of age. I have just discovered that my heart seems to be missing a beat after every 20 or so beats, I am under some stress at the moment but didn't think it was really affecting me adversely until now. Any ideas?

The time to worry is when your heart stops beating altogether.

My cardiologist said it is normal. He said that most people have irregular heartbeats. He said that some people are just way more sensitive about hearing and feeling them.

I have had them since I was young, like you. They are much worse the week before my cycle. I notice them much more when I am still, like when I lay down at night. The doctor said that they are usually worse when you lay on one side or the other.

Mine have been really bad lately, so I went in for a checkup with the cardiologist last month. He did an echocardiogram. Everything came back normal, despite the fact that I thought that I was dying!

I have felt SO much better since I went to the doctor. If you have the money, go ahead and go. It's worth it not to have to worry anymore.

I have Blue Cross and Blue Shield and I ended up owing 250.00 because I had not yet made my deductible. If yours is paid up, it should only cost you your co-pay. The total amount for the visit if I had not had insurance would have been 625.00.

I'm sure you are fine. He said that he rarely finds problems in someone as young as me. I'm 46, so surely you are in good shape at 24! Never hurts to get it checked out, though.

You really can't know unless you talk with your own doctor. But most people skip heart beats daily and are just fine.

The answer to your question is no, not all irregular heartbeats are dangerous. Stress certainly can cause this to occur, or drinking too much coffee, that sort of thing can also do it. Try to relax, maybe take a walk and see if this helps, if you are concerned go get a checkup.

yes and no. what I mean is if the irregularity is server they keep you in the hospital to cheek on you. if it not so bad live a normal life while you still can.

nope most people have irregular beats at some time

Yes, that's called a heart murmur, and it's totally normal. Millions of people have it and don't even realize it. I have one, and it's nothing dangerous, life-threatening or fatal. It's harmless. Don't worry, it won't mutate into anything weird.

when most beats are then it's an emergency at least mine was

request an ECG at your GP

An ECG can detect problems with your heart rhythm.
It can show if you have had a heart attack, either recently, or some time ago.
It can also tell if your heart has become enlarged or is working under strain.
The ECG is a simple and useful test but it has some limitations. An abnormal reading does not always mean that there is something wrong.
On the other hand, some patients who have serious heart disease may have a normal ECG.

large proportions of people have heart murmurs as suggested above but there are different severity levels, of 1-6
some need watching, some dont
mine does
it DOES sound like heart murmur, if you're uinder stress you may have only JUST noticed it.
check it out regardless, but persist if you're not happy about it.
GP's tend to dismiss many heart murmurs.
mine was detected as initially a heart murmur, but one of my valves was in fact leaking .

Not necessarily serious - palpitations are quite common - but never ignore these things, have it checked out. Tony Blair had an attack of this sort a year or two ago and when into hospital for a minor procedure.

Donna M
No, not at all. You should double check with your doctor just to be on the safe side, but everybody misses the odd beat. It's called ectopic beats.

In fact, you're not missing a beat at all - it's just slightly delayed and thumps slightly harder as a consequence.

Try not worry - if you are not having any other symptoms such as breathlessness, pain etc., then you are probably fine. But, like I say, I am not a medical person (just a fellow sufferer) so do please see your GP.

Stress can cause alot of problems in your body. Irregular beats, by themselves, are not dangerous unless they become symptomatic (ie: cause hypotension, chest pain, etc.) Very few people have perfectly paced hearts, meaning always a perfect sinus rhythm. Check with a cardiologist to make sure, and try to decrease your stress and limit your intake of stimulants (ie: coffee, alcohol, drugs-like diet pills, sinus meds, energy boosters/and of course any illegal drugs that will cause your body to speed up!). Hope it helps!

not at all. get it checked out - even to just put ur mind at rest

I think the doctor will be able to answer that.
I know that some medications have possible side effects with few people. Check the leaflet or pack that came with your tablets. Then go to the doctors just to make sure.
