Ectopic beats?: Everybody's heart does a flipflip once in a while, more in caffeine users; we call this a premature ventricular contraction and unless you have more than 5 per minute, or a run of them, or have pain or faint, it's a non-problem.

Sometimes I suddenly get palpitations! Like my heart skips a beat! 112 BPM when lay down. Should I tell my GP?
Yes.: An EKG and Holter monitor are non-invasive and can give good information. Lab may be needed for Ca, Mg and K levels if you are on other meds or have loose stools. Treatment at home that works well is Mg (magnesium). For skip beats etc. I use Mag Glycinate or Mag Maleate @ 200 mg 3x/d. [this can cause loose stools so you might only tolerate 400 mg. You can easily take 800 mg. This helps 90% of ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
