Re: Really need an answer please
Hi Sarah,, ive just read your post, and it sounds s if you are getting what I have. Im 77, and have been having these horrible missed beats since I was 18. They went away for a long time during my 30s 40s and 50s, but have returned with a vengeance this last four or five years. I get the horrible thumps, and a long pause between, sometimes as many as 10, then my heart will start beating normally again for a little while. I get it worse when im in bed, and when I wake in the morning. Sometimes I get it when im in the supermarket. Ive had an ecg and ultra sound, and they say it is ectopic beats, but i cant feel the small beat before the thud, so I dont know. I too get the horrible feelings in my head especially when im getting the thumps. Im having another ecg this week, and im going to ask the dr if I can have another holter monitor. I do feel sorry for you as these horrible feelings are so frightening. They make you feel so weak and faint.
