Actually, in a strange way, we are fortunate we can feel them. They can be an indication of a problem in comparatively few cases. In that regard, becoming aware and seeking medical advice may be of significant value. The problem is that once we're told that they are benign, we have trouble letting go of the concern. I've seen two cardiologists (one that wanted to do more testing, saying my EKG was abnormal, but the abnormality is an inverted T-Wave, which I have always had, I have EKGs from more than 20 years ago with them), and two E.P. doctors, and of the four, three are not concerned and the one that wanted to do additional tests said that there is nothing they can do for PVCs. Ugh! That's the only reason I went to see him, not to fuss over my inverted T-Wave (which may signify a problem if that is a new finding on the EKG).
I'm always amazed when I tell a doctor I can feel every ectopic. I've seen this time and time again, they're watching the EKG and as I get them ask "did you feel that one" I reply "yes". This goes on and on for 10 or so before they're convinced.
Since I started on the Acebutolol, I had one evening when I briefly joined the "can't feel them" group, not even for the entire evening, just for a brief time that evening. I was in bed, trying to assess my pulse to see if it was unduly effected by the Acebutolol, and when I felt my wrist was shocked to realize I was in a geminy pattern but didn't feel it in my chest. Wow, I wish it was that way most of the time.
The best thing about seeing the E.P. is that he said I can call 24/7 if I have problems, and I have not availed myself of that yet, mostly because I've started to accept that, as of this time, "This is what you want, this is what you get" which corresponds to so much of life also corresponds to my heart rhythm.
