My heart misses a beat at least a couple of times every minute, and although i know this to be perfectly normal its gone on for weeks now.
Sometimes it doesn`t happen when i first wake up but as soon as i do anthing off it goes.
Today my heart isn`t beating really fast but its pounding.
This happened when i was having a thyroid problem before but my throid results were ok last time ?

I used to get it when i was going through a spate of panic attacks.

Book another appointment with your GP.

Did you just want to lie still or sleep ?
I find i want to go and lie down all the time ?

Sounds like thyroid to me, I'd go back to gp.

Get it checked, it's most likely thyroid, but sometimes infections can make your heart race/pound heavily.

Can be all sorts of things - most likely stress/caffeine/alcohol/pre-menopausal symptoms (if you're the right age) or a combination of these
