  • skipping beats

    I didn't drink any coffee or tea today but did have some dark chocolate tonight
    My heart is skipping beats

    counted to 79, skip, 14 skip, 14 , skip, 32 skip

    it has skipped before when husband out of town and little sleep
    but have slept pretty good this wk and he's home

    what could it be?

  • See your doctor for evaluation and referral. It could be a normal rhythm for you, or it could not be normal. Do you listen/feel your heart beats often? And is this different than what you usually count?

    We can have normal sinus "arrhythmias" and things that seem wrong, but they can possibly be normal. I'd get your booty to a doc to be sure, my Dear. I know you don't like going to the doc, but our ticker is nothing to mess with and certainly warrants more than a shot in the dark theory from us here on the web!
    Be well! and let us know what happens.

    • Are you possibly a bit dehydrated/low on potassium? I agree with ats that I'd speak with a doctor about it.

      • had husband feel my pulse (at my neck) last night and he felt skips and said to go to stat care today

        but I feel much better this morn and going back to sleep
        it has been horribly/hot humid and it's possible BD that I've gotten dehydrated as I never think to drink enough water

        when I get back up today, will drink water and no tea/coffee today (which have gotten in habit of)

        thank you both!

            • my heart is still skipping which learned by reading isn't really skipping but a slightly longer beat and until heart does next beat, it seems like a skipped beat

              • If you are seriously concerned that your heart is skipping that many beats get to the emergency room. Chances are it is something other than a cardiac event. It could be anything from food choices, medications, activities, focusing too much on what your body is doing, to depression, to anxiety. Do you suffer any other symptoms? Are you able to do your regular daily routine without having to stop, rest, re-assess yourself? I might suggest that your heart can and will beat with different amounts of pressure depending upon what is going on, whether or not you've been over-active, under-active etc. If you are measuring your beats per minute at your carotid artery (neck) you are not really counting heartbeats but rather the amount and timing of blood going through a one-way valve in that particular artery. The valve could be remaining open longer rather than opening/closing in a regular rhythm. Either way, it's always better to get it checked out.

                I don't know about where you are but usually the first line of defence is your doctor, if you don't have a primary physician go to a walk-in centre. They have the same rights of referral and can get you in touch with a specialist if necessary.
                That which we forget may as well never really happened.

                • thanks, Claret

                  not up to going to a statcare
                  will just keep trying to find a Dr who'll take new pts

                  • still no luck on getting a Dr
                    tried again this week


                    what is going on with all the drs around where we live that they decide who they'll take as a patient?
                    or they're not taking new pts at all

                    • for a while was keeping my stress down which seemed to help but noticed yest my heart beats are still goofy

                      we live someone where there's a higher elderly population
                      they're horrible, horrible drivers too which stresses me daily when I drive child to school and pick up

                      every other day, we are almost hit by someone
                      I wish everyone over 70 had to retake a physical and written driving test because they are dangerous around here!

                      • Because of the economics of being a doctor, most doctors these days try to become specialists instead of general practitioners. Small towns have resorted to paying off general practitioner's loans if the doctor will contract to practice in their town for a given number of years.

                        • It sounds like you need a camera recording video in your car in case of a crash.

                            I really do!

                            can't believe how many people don't even stop at stop signs and run fully red lights around here
                            one good thing, our town police are always catching speeders

                            • Most towns, even smaller towns, have urgent care offices, or small clinics staffed by CNP's or PA's. Go to one of those. Start there.
                              Your anxiety and stress can cause palpitations also. But best not to assume anything, especially related to your heart. Get to a doc, woman...it's been 3+ months.
