no sxs....if no other sxs what could this be? Just spoke with his cardiologist who said as long As no other sxs get some sleep and get a strip run tomorro
It could be due to pre-ventricular contractions, which are not harmful, as long as he has no symptoms, I think he is fine, he can have an EKG tomorrow
