I've been getting irregular heart beats all my life and have had my heart checked for it many years ago. Once I carried a monitor around for 24 hours. They found nothing.
Then one day, while I was hooked up to a heart monitor to get a colonoscopy, my heart fluttered and it showed up on the monitor. I was taking prednisone at the time.
No one thought it was a big deal. A lot of people get irregular heart beats.
I get irregular heart beats more frequently when I'm taking medicine, consume caffeine, am sick, am anemic, am feeling nervous, or don't get enough sleep...
If your doctors do not find anything wrong with your heart, then I wouldn't worry about
"A heart flutter, or arrhythmia, can be worrying, but it often happens when there is no other sign of heart disorder. It is quite common in older people. Symptoms can include heart palpitations, dizziness, fainting or breathlessness."
If it worries you, then just don't do those things that make your heart beat irregularly.
