Brief Answer: Further cardiac tests recommended... Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your medical history and what you feel as extra heart beat might be extra-systoles. I suggest to do : - EKG - Holter monitoring - cardiac echo - Stress test to evaluate the heart condition. If everything is ok, then, there is nothing to be worried about. I also advise : - not to drink coffee, carbonated drinks, energetic drinks - have regular meals, do not skip - avoid alcohol - avoid oily/spicy, chilly foods Hope it was of help! Dr.Benard
