Investigate: At your age, the number of causes are numerous. Bigeminy (double beats) is not a dangerous rhythm disturbance but can be a call to action for you. I would want to see a chest xray, echo, stress test and routine blood work in addition to hearing about potential symptoms you may have and not recognize. I would want to examine you.
