One thing I would like to ask you. Do any of you have a picc line on your arm? I carry one, even the heart and curiously, I started to have arrhythmias so following after this ... Previously I had some ectopic beats, but I think that no arrhythmia ...

Could it be that the tip of the catheter is irritating the heart tissue? Maybe only son speculations ....

OriolCarol, any changes there and you definitely should see your doctor!

You don't wait on changes in a picc line. Call his office today or go to a clinic and have it checked out. A quick xray will tell if it is in a bad position.
