I went to my GP a few weeks back due to feeling my heart

Customer Question

Hi , I went to my GP a few weeks back due to feeling my heart missing a beat. I am 35yr old female, I exercise regularly (crossfit 6-8 times a week). So I had an ECG done and he said I had a slight long QT but he said if it was his decision he would class it as normal. I also had to wear a king of hearts monitor for 7 days. I mostly feel the missed beats when I am warming up & cooling down in the gym. I am feeling very anxious about the whole thing. I have been waiting 9 days and still no results , which I don't know if that's good or bad.

Thanks for this question

This is most likely normal

These are common in athletic people

they are called PVCs

they are extra beats that occur because of increased athletic heart tone.

they are benign

the monitor will show this
