A strange feeling

Hey i have a question about this wierd feeling i have been getting in near my heart for quite a while now. It happens at random and im not sure what it is. It feels like a flutter or a strong push or thump in my heart. It just happens for one beat about once every few days or so. ive read some other threads describing the same thing but im not sure what it is, could someone tell me what it is? Im getting worried now as its been going on for something like 9 months but usually i just ignore because otherwise i feel perfectly fine. Im 16 by the way, so could anyone give me some info, like on the risks or dangers of this. Also what is the treatment?

Re: A strange feeling

It sounds like either premature atrial contractions (PACs) or premature ventricle contractions (PVCs) which I assume you have read the other threads about. If you are otherwise healthy and there is no underlying disorder causing them, they are almost always completely harmless. Get it evaluated by a doctor to rule out underlying disorders, just to be sure, but in the meantime try not to let it worry you too much. It can be scary but, once every few days, is probably a symptom of nothing more serious than a perfectly normal and healthy heart . Most of the population has them occasionally; some people notice them and some people don't.
