Is Atrial run dangerous or have future significance? I get this alot when kneeling, laying down or lifting weights. Had normal echo, ccta.

You need to be seen: By a Cardiologist for an event monitor. If it is caused by an errant atrial focus, then you may be okay. But I would corner the Cardiologist to make sure he knows exactly what you are having and what to do about it. Either way followup regularly with him will help diagnose any future problems. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
