Have a racing heart off and on. Is there anything to be worried?

I have been having a racing heart off and on and sometimes it feels like it skips a beat when I am laying down. I had an abnormal ekg so the heart dr thinks possibly persistent juvenille t waves. I am now wearing a monitor for 48 hrs and will have an echo done next week. The dr didn't think it was anything serious but I'm trying not to worry

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Don't worry... These beats are common and often may be normal. / Yet it is advisable to have it investigated.
Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much tea, coffee, cola) / Fever / Pain / Stress / Thyroid / Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium / Medicines like Phenylephrine used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol used for asthma and so on / may be responsible.... / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine are notorious to cause abnormal beats / At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) or disease of the conduction system may be responsible!
Your doctor will assess and assist...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
