They lasted an hour almost constant last night and today there on and off more on than off it's driving me insaine! I'm worried I'm a Carer for dd and i dread going
to gp incase he says something wrong! I can't afford to be 'under the weather' sad

i had a problem for a while with an intermittent slow heart rate and had a ecg test, the doc put it down to the amount of coffee i drank hmm i admit i did drink loads but i thought it would speed it up not slow it down.
could this be a reason for your palpitations do u think ?

It's probably innocent, but of course you should see your GP - you know that anyway!

Being a carer for your dd makes it doubly important to keep a check on your own health. Even if there is a problem found, there will be a treatment (and maybe a huge wait <sigh>). Chances are, you will be told that it's fine. But isn't it better to get an ECG and have your doctor tell you that, than a stranger on the internet with absolultely no medical qualifications smile.
