I have not been diagnosed with MS, but have a lot of symptoms. And since Spring of this year have started having extra heartbeats--PAC's. There were a lot of tests done and I wore a Holter monitor for 2 days with some positive results. The heartbeats are not dangerous but I wonder where they started since nothing came from the test results. Do any of you have these and MS???

According to information I found on reputable medical sources, regarding these common heart palpitations, heart disease is not the most common cause of PACs. If that were the case, the estimated 50% of the general population, believed to have relatively frequent PVCs/PACs, would all be walking around with heart disease.
AS far as MS causing PACs, I have no direct knowledge that this is true nor have I ever heard of someone in this forum ask that question.  Please do mention your concern to your Dr.
Good Luck,
