Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
I wonder if you've had EKG and 2D echocardiogram
Irregular heart beats are classified depending on its origin. Sometimes an ectopic beat
is followed by a pause
which is sensed as absent beat. They are sensed differently at different regions. The above tests are basic tests that will give us more information about the type and severity of the problem. This can be followed up with an 24 hours / week holter monitoring.
Duplicate heart is a rare entity. Locating 2 different location is a sign of this entity. Try feeling your chest. You should be able to locate a heart beat in the space between the 4th and 5th rib around the left nipple. If you find another similar beat in another locations (commonly) on the other side, it indicates a second heart. X-ray and echocardiogram will confirm it.
The bottom line is I do not feel you could be having 2 heart. Instead what you might have is rhythm disturbance (arrhythmia
). The aforementioned tests will guide you.
Hope this answers your query.
