Get yourself examined
Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia
occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly, one needs Holter or event monitor.
Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much tea, coffee, cola) / Fever / Infection / 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!
HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram
– may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance. The need and speed will be decided by your cardiologist, based on his assessment of the situation. Discuss with your doctor...
