Hi, I have been experiencing frequent (like 5 a minute)

Hi, I have been experiencing frequent (like 5 a minute) premature beats. Worse at night and after exercise. They were caught on the ECG. One Dr said they were just frequent but harmless PACs. The other Dr in the ER said they looked just like normal sinus beats occuring at the wrong time - SA node misfires. I was sent to my cardiologist for follow up, but my appt is weeks away, and I'm nervous. I'm familiar with PACs coming from areas other than the SA node, but not SA "misfires." Is this dangerous? Correctible? My dad has sick sinus syndrome, and said this is how his problem started, so I'm concerned.

hi, a friend just experienced pain on the left side of the neck (towards the front and not the back) for around 10 minutes and it then subsided. She says she experienced something similar once before three years ago. She has frequent neck pains so could it be related to her neck or something else? Thank you (It felt like the veins)

Hi, I m going to the toilet (peeing) very frequently, when I go it almost feels like I need to go again badly in about 10 minutes. Today I drank a quarter of a pint of lager and I peed 4 times in the following 45 minutes (all see nearly clear and a substantial amount of pee). It is now affecting my sex life too, I enter my girflriend and immediately the tip feels ultra sensitive and it forces me into ejaculation almost immediately! Please help
