I have had a thyroid test at my Doctors and i phoned them later today and this was normal. I asked before but i did not get a response from you, do you think is it worth asking for a A-Z vitamin and mineral blood test to check to see if i am lacking anything in my diet? As i was informed that diet could help with these ectopic beats, so do you think this is worth looking into?
>An a-z mineral blood test would be of minimal utility. But I would make sure you had your calcium, magnesium and phosphate level checked
I have tried the Yoga in a morning and while it does relieve the symptoms for the 20 minutes while i am doing this. As soon as i stop and i can be quite relaxed the symptoms reoccur. Do you really think it is anxiety related. I have been very stressed at times and had no palpitations before i got diagnosed with ectopic beats. Do you think it is possibly something else causing these strange irregular heartbeats? Further is there any other exercised i can do besides yoga?
>You can do swimming or walking. Try meditation and see if that helps with the heartbeats.
What about deep breathing exercises, my doctor informed me to lay down and breath in and out very slowly, is this a good option?
Yes, this is a form of meditation. I would also ask for a referral to a psychologist- they can help you with biofeedback techniques
I have also been advised of these supplements, coenzyme Q10 which helps keep your heart rhythm regular. Take 2 to 3 grams of cold-pressed marine fish oil, which is high in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. The amino acid taurine helps quell irregular electrical impulses in the heart. Can you confirm if these supplements could be okay to trial are these safe suggestions? Not altogether but one at once for a period of time.
Yes, you can take ALL of these supplements and at the same time- often coenzyme Q10 is bundled with omega-3
As i am going through a trial and error stage i really wanted your input to try get my quality of life back. I will update you on the diet and antacid which you have suggested and get back to you.
