irregular heart beat
I have had a racing heart and pulse a few times this week. It comes on randomly and has nothing to do with caffeine or meds or panic attacks. I went and had my BP taken today. It is 113/73, and on the second reading, she picked up an irregular beat (85). She said not to worry but to have it checked again. Should I be worried?

Hallo Blossom
I think it will be wise to ask your GP to do an ECG to see if you perhaps have a heart arrythmia.
