Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi,

It is important to see if you have any kind of arrhythmia or is it just your sensation. I recommend having an ECG when you have the sensation or doing a 24-hour ambulatory monitoring for heart rate which is easy to do.

It can probably be extra heartbeats called PVCs which may be due to anemia or thyroid disease and so finding the cause is important before treatment. The treatment is easy and no worries.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammad Mostafa Ansari Ramandi, Cardiologist

My heart continually skips an average of seven skips in one minute. I am also experiencing shortness of breath without any exertion. I have high blood presure and I am taking medidations to control it. I am alergic to a few prescription dieretic medications so I am taking nettle leaves which is very effective in releasing fluid from my body through urination. Can you give me a course to take to help with my heart skipping beats and my shortness of breath?
