So I know I went to the ER back in the beginning of May and the EKG came back normal, but the irregular heartbeat are still somewhat happening. I didn't have any for three whole days and now I feel them again. This afternoon I went in my pool and then I was watching tv and it started happening. It's just so frustrating, I can't stop thinking about it. Sometimes I think is it going to happen while I'm in a store or out to eat or with family. I go on vacation five days to a beach and I'm worried that it's going to there too. My mom said there is nothing wrong because everything came back normal, and I really can't afford to spend money on another medical bill I have so much! Please tell me someone has experienced this where you can't stop thinking about it.

You can read all about other people with the same experiences all over this forum, and any other anxiety forum for that matter. I have also experienced these, more times than I can count. You'll be okay. It's uncomfortable, I know.

You know I have had skips beats and pvcs for years all picked up on holter monitor. Docs said normal, nothing to worry about. I had my vitamin D checked recently and it was low so I started taking vitamin d pills and it has really decreased my skipped beats. You should give that a try.

I was coming in to post about this because the past week my heart periodically races for a few minutes. I’m wonder if it has anything to do with menstrual cycle about to start but it freaks me out. It’s happened before but it’s scary.

I wonder if it’s my vitamin d because I’m prescribed vitamin d but haven’t taken it in a few weeks

I'm going through it too, again! Almost four weeks of barely a thing. Then, last night, I had pizza. Don't know if that had anything to do with it but am still having them now. They makes me feel nauseous. Thats what I really hate about them. Just keep remembering all your tests came back normal and they tend to happen for some of us. Hang in there!

I'm also thinking I may have been a little dehydrated. At the ER last month I didn't have any while I was there so they didn't show up on the EKG, but if it was anything serious they would have saw it.

Dehydration can cause it, yeah, as can anxiety and a wide variety of other harmless issues. Caffeine and other stimulants can cause them. Occasional skipped beats and other palpitations are very normal and everyone experiences them from time to time. Most people just don't notice them. Oftentimes after physical exertion, while the body is winding down, there will be an occasional off-time electrical signal, which causes a palpitation.

I just experienced one or two myself. I was outside doing some yard work. When I stopped and went inside I felt that skip feeling in my chest. I just had another while typing this. They don't bother me like they used to, but I definitely understand why they feel concerning.

I was listening to 2 ER doctors yesterday and they were saying how many people come in with
skipped beats and its so common. Most people dont even feel them but others are just really sensitive and
feel every one (me! :)
