Re: Enlarged Heart

I realize many people have "extra" or "irregular" beats with perfectly normal hearts. I keep reminding myself of that fact....it's just hard to get through to myself at times. The "extra" beats didn't bother so much on the holter report as the "pauses of less than 2.5 seconds". That really freaks me out the most. Why would the heart "pause"? I think the advice for exercise is a great one! I need to find an exercise program and stick to it! I'm not overweight or anything - I'm 42 yrs old, 5'3" and about 125 lbs. So, weight isn't really an issues as much as the sedentary life style I've fallen into just being not healthy! I do really appreciate all of the kind thoughts - and wish everyone well!
