Treatments For Extrasystole
Is skipped or miss heartbeat the same as extrasystole. Is this miss heartbeat serious & it normally does not required any treatment at all.
Different: What feels like a skip to you is often an extrasystole. If an ECG or monitor actually shows a missed or dropped beat, this is different. It may be from medications, or there may be some problem with the conduction system in your heart. When you doc looks at the actual arrhythmia on the strips, he can determine the seriousness of it, and if any treatment is needed. ...Read more

See a doctor.: I hate to inconvenience you since I am a patient too, but it's time to check in with a doctor again. The possibility is that this is nothing serious, but why not find out if you now have an over or under active thyroid or some other easily treated cause of your troubles? You could be anemic. It's worth a hands on evaluation. ...Read more

Hi. I had a sharp medium pain close to left nipper and sharp sound in right ear, all for secounds.Few weeks bf doctor said mpv and extrasystole.
Hello Ireland: I acknowledge that we speak different forms of English but is "nipper" a small boy, a vise tool, or misspelled nipple? I assume mpv is MVP (mitral valve prolapse)? Anyway, the heart never causes ear pain. MVP and extra-systoles are very common and not dangerous unless severe. A 24 hr recording and echocardiogram would determine this. If annoying there meds that can help suppress them. -bf doctor? ...Read more
I did echocardio i have mvp & extrasystole. I take magnesium. Small effort my heart beating 120 min and 2-3 extrasystole. Can i do sport? Dangerous?
Begin slowly: MVP is generally not dangerous. Relatively increased heart rate with very mild exertion can be signs of dehydration, anemia (low blood count) or thyroid issues, and a high adrenalin state related to stress and anxiety. Also could be a sign of being out of shape. Would address above issues with your doctor. Hydrate, start exercise slowly and add stress reduction eg breathing, yoga, meditation. ...Read more

31y male. I have some extrasystoles and chest pain+"jolts" when lying in bed trying to sleep, worse in supine. Ekg, echo, holter normal. What can it be?
Extrasystoles during intensive workout(160bpm). No chest pain, dizzyness or short of breath. Normal eco, ECG and holter results. Psychological?
No. It's fine that it's happening, that's what the tests are telling you. The fact that you have no other symptoms means there's also nothing wrong with you. The fact that you are still concerned about it, most certainly psychological. What do you think about while you are working out? Next time you feel it occur, try to be mindful of your thoughts.
Maybe there is someone you can talk to about it? ...Read more

Prescription not OTC: Any heavily advertised otc "natural" or "organic" pill to help men get firmer, last longer and/or grow larger has no basis in peer-reviewed published data. Oral options to treat ed include cialis, levitra, (vardenafil) staxyn, stendra & viagra. Alprostadil can be administered in two ways, intraurethral & intracavernosal (via injection). Vacuum pumps work, too. But as noted, you need to figure out cause first. ...Read more

If needed, there are also surgical options available. Discuss with your dr for the best option for you. ...Read more
Pulmonary embolism?: If you are referring to a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lung), it is usual for a patient to be put on the blood thinner, heparin, and a little later - coumadin (warfarin).

It's also important to determine risk factors: medications, genetic factors which predispose a person to increased clotting. ...Read more
