Default Heart problems

I was put on Protonix for a throat injury from ground fighting, I had my esophagus injured and a little acid reflux was keeping it from healing. I took Protonix for 3 weeks then I decided the side effects (my elbows were sore in the morning, I developed a bone sore in my jaw, and a mild twitch in my chest) the sore elbow and jaw got better but the twitch in my chest turned out to be my heart! <br><br>After 3 days of random 10-20 second heart flutters and mild tightness about half the day I went to the doctor. EKG was okay but when he listed to my heart he said I have an irregular extra beat and asked if I could feel it, I told him no it feels fine at the moment, but the flutter and tightness scares the hell out of me. I am 43 don't drink or smoke and am just below a professional athlete in health. I am being put on a 24 hour heart monitor tomorrow and have no clue what they can do to help me.<br><br><br>I will not recommend this medicine to anyone unless it's your only chance at life, as I believe it is killing me even after stopping taking it. Their website is useless for people with side effects. I called my brother two days ago and provided him will all my financial information - thats how bad this is for me.
