Extra heartbeat

I am new to this board. I a question that I hope someone out there could help me with. For a number of years I have episodes of an extra heart beat. It usually happens once, makes me cough (kind of takes my breath away) and thats the end of it. I have had tests and what not, and was told as long as it doesn't become frequent it won't cause a problem. Well now it is 10 years later and it happens several times a day. Does anyone else have this problem? I do take medication for high blood pressure which was diagnosed several years after the heart thing started.
I would appreciate and thoughts

Re: Extra heartbeat

Extra systoles? May be a symptom of disease and may be a nothing important. I always had extrasystoles, started on my teens and sometimes occured later too. It feels like heart skips and then beets twice very fast. Happens when im caffeined or nervous.

Ask a doctor.

PS: My blood pressure is ok

Re: Extra heartbeat

thanks for the input

I don't drink caffeine ( no coffee or soft drinks) and I am not anxious. It just seems to happen whenever. I have tried to find a pattern but nothing.
I guess I will it checked as it is happening more frequently and I am getting lightheaded with it.
