Anyone have an EKG that showed extra heartbeats?

Hi all,
I have been diagnosed with GAD. To rule out heart problems my doctor did an EKG and showed that I have extra heartbeats and was wondering if any of you have that same issue because of anxiety?

Sometimes I have extra beats due to my heart murmur. It is nothing to be concerned about--the rhythm of the heart will reset itself. You could consider having an echocardiogram if you are worried...Take care, Jitterygal

Thank you for your response. I just got a call from my doctor and she wants to do a 24 holter monitor to just be sure it is anxiety. I have had these symptoms for quite some time and all along she just assumed it was anxiety until recently when she did the EKG. I am really scared so if there are any words of wisdom out there they would be greatly appreciated.

Hormones seem to affect mine (that time of the month). Also, if I work out and don't cool down properly, I get those extra beats...Just go have an echo or a stress test if you would feel better...I did all that and it put my mind at ease...Jitterygal
