Customer Question

About tow years ago on a regular doctor's check up I was told that I was suffering from atrial fibrillation. Metropol was prescribed. I did not take the big M, but I cured the problem by elimination of the strong EMField in which I lived. And kept it cured, perhaps by additionally sleeping on a grounded sheet, and going into the sea for a little exercise most every day
Now with hurricanes buzzing around I have been hyperactive - that is: for some- one of my 93 years.
This morning when I was moving around I felt quite weak. I sat down to check my pulse which was most irregular.
I squirted two droppers full of cayenne pepper extract into a glass of water, downed the fiery drink, and rested. About twenty minutes later, my pulse was back to a regular 62. Like miraculous.
Some six hours later, I have detected a small irregularity. Whilst I am not too concerned, I should like to know what to do if any small irregularity should become morec onstant

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Can you tell me what you mean by a small irregularity please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Right now the pulse is quite regular, a short time ago there was a missed beat, in 4/5/10/ beats. Even the irregularity cannot be easily defined because there is no rhythm to it.

Can't you see my response?

I'm asking how many times a minute does the skipped beat occur

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
O.K Perhaps the cardiologist, Dr Chip, has had a heart attack and so is unable to reply. I GIVE UP
Expert:  tazechip replied 1 month ago.

Three times now I've asked how many skipped beats in a minute there were

Can't you see those responses?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
This weird. I did not see any of your replies and did not go look at my inbox, as i guess I should have.
There is no regularity to my skipped beats - a beat missed every one to ten steady beats
Expert:  tazechip replied 1 month ago.


Most likely those are atrial premature contractions and usually they aren't anything dangerous

Sometimes they may be caused by a serum potassium or magnesium or calcium imbalance

So nothing too worrisome now but you need to check this out with your doctor and get and get an EKG and some blood work

Please let me know if you need any more information
