... in response to What are Ectopic heartbeats?
  1. robin ny robin ny United States says:

    Reading this is quite a reassurance. I have been experiencing one or two strong heartbeats per day off and on for past few months with no other symptoms. I am not sure if I've had them forever/before and it is only recently that I've become aware or if they are new. I am 33 years old female, thin, very active.  I am very active (I walk quite a bit and play competitive Badminton). I do not smoke or drink, never have. I do have mild allergy-induced asthma which is well under control. I take Singulair/Montelukast (10 mg) and Zyrtec (5 mg) daily for allergies and asthma. For many years, I used to have a cup of tea in the morning and 1 (max 2) cups of coffee during the day/evening which I have quit for the past 2 or so weeks. I now only have one cup of tea in the morning.

    Wondering if you might be able to shed more light on this?

      I feel more of them while sitting still watching tv or laying down. I always think it's because i'm at a certain angle. I try everything to rid myself of them. they started in 1987, but who knows I might have had them all my life but only then did I start noticing them. I hate having to white knuckle my way through an episode of them. We are not alone, but I feel so alone when I get them, like no one else understands...
