Hi everyone, I had exercise test on thursday no ectopics on exercise but plenty during recovery. I also notice as soon as I wake up on taking my pulse I often have skipped or pauses between beats. The cardiologist said they are benign. But I just wonder what causes them and why the irregulrarity at set times. I know some people have them all the time and I do have the odd bang in my chest from time to time even once about 7 in a row. I read that ectopics after exercise isn't a good sign from research done and the fact that my cardiologist says my heart is okay and reading that article that is online I am feeling more than confused at the moment. No follow up nor treatment required except suggestion regarding medication for fibromyalgia which cardio thinks is causing chest pain. I don't know whether to seek more testing like a holter monitor or not. Any advice massively appreciated.

You certainly could talk with your cardiologist and ask if you are a candidate for a Holter Monitor.

I understand you concern so please know that I care.
