I know how frustrating it is to feel fine when you finally get your appt, but the cardiologist can see if there are any underlying problems that could make this ectopic beat a problem. It can be very benign, but it can be deadly.
The great thing is a simple pill a day can protect you if it is a problem.
I know what happens when you let things go because they aren't a problem today. Don't do that, please

So I have made the appointment and it is on the 21st of this month. $179 but I get most of it back because I am on a disability pension. The GP I go to is free because I am on the pension and the medical centre does bulk billing through Medicare. Australia's health system is a good one.
So my appointment is booked. Phew.

The irregular heart beats are happening again so now I feel I have good reason to go.
