Since Thursday evening I have had slow or irregular heartbeat.

This answer was rated:

Since Thursday evening I have had slow or irregular heartbeat. At first 44 per minute now regular 1,2,3 and then a gap. I feel tired and anxious but do not have other symptoms. I have made an appointment to see GP next week on Thursday.
I would not wait.
This could be a heart block and any symptoms at all can indicated a danger.

You need an EKG now, not next week.
