I've suffered from something called ventricular ectopic's on and off for a few years. I may go for a year without it and then it will come back and last the 2 to 3 weeks. But basically my heart beat is constant its' just that it will beat for example 5 times and the 6th beat will be in the lower part of chamber. It's quite unsettling and unpleasant. I think it's stress-related. I recommend trying magnesium citrate which helps calm things down. The other thing I found very useful particularly when it first started to happen was L-arginine and taurine supplements. It might seem odd suggesting taurine as that's what's in red Bull but that combination of the 2 really helped me when I had a really bad bout of them around Christmas a couple of years ago. There is also a useful forum here you might find helpful.
