Most common cause of "double heart beating" or extrasystoles in a young person, is stress and nervousness (98% if under ages 20 to 25) A mild sedative after a EKG by your GP combined or not with a beta blocker in decent quantities, (propanolol 80 miligrams per day divided in half doses) will do the trick---- First step is CALM DOWN, in the vast majority f cases it is more a nuisance that means literary nothing, to a treatable condition, and normaly, no more than an acurate EKG will be needed at the GP office---
