Ventricular Ectopics

Does anybody know about these please ?

I had a 24 hour ECG and it showed I have these but my GP said not to worry.
Since then they have got stronger, they are like sudden heavy palpitations in my lower neck (at the front just below Adams Apple) usually accompanied by a feeling of fainting, though I dont actually faint. They are pretty alarming - any comments would be much appreciated. Thanks, Ivan

Re: Ventricular Ectopics

On my Holters it usually showed hundreds of Ventricular Ectopics and thousands of SupraVentricular Ectopics over a 24 hour period of time.

My heartbeat used to get agitated and more erratic when I came into contact with something that irritated my heart, like cigarette smoke, or caffeine (in coffee, tea, soda or chocolate), high pollens outside, chemical smells, too many carbs or sugar in my diet, etc.

Most of the times, though, I really had no idea exactly what brought on the ectopic beats. I only know what would make my heartbeat noticeably worse.
Greatly Improved CHF, A-Fib, HBP, Asthma:

⇒ Eliminate household items that are toxic!
⇒ Balanced, healthy, low glycemic diet
⇒ Lots of Exercise
⇒ Avoid night allergens, toxins
⇒ Coreg!
