I've read a few articles about ectopic heart beats, but I still don't 100% understand the symptoms.
I have a problem(?) and I'd like to know if these are ectopic beats.
if I sit or lie calm, I generally can feel my heartbeats. and some of the beats are somewhat stronger than most of the beats (and happen almost constantly). If I take my pulse on my neck, I can feel the stronger beats with my fingers as well.
my heart beats like this:
bam bam bam BAM bam BAM bam bam bam bam BAM BAM bam bam ...
so... these big BAMs, are not THAT big. stronger, but not earth shaking. and the rhythm and rate of the beats are fine. there are NO skips between them (maybe just a fracture of second that I can't really feel). as far as I know, classic ectopics are extra beats or skipped beats, that are obvious (once a month I notice 1-1 skipped beat too, those are different and scary).
so, can these BAMs be ectopic beats? what do you think?
