Just wanted to see if anyone here might know a bit more about
this. I have been having PVC's and they are driving me crazy. I haven't actually gone to the doctor about
them, but am planning on doing so very soon. Just don't have the money at the moment to make the appt.
These things started up out of nowhere about a two months ago. At first I thought it was a mucle spasm and then one day I was feeling my pulse and noticed that it felt like it stopped during the feeling I was having. Well i stupidly made the mistake of listening to my heartbeat and I actually heard it stop during the event. Well I have since been told that your heart doesn't stop it just skips a beat. Well to me a skip and stopping are pretty much the same thing. The heart doesn't do anything for at least a second.
Anyway I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to control or make these things less annoying. Ever since I heard my heart stop. I have been overly paranoid. I already have OCD, and Anxiety/Panic Attacks. Someone there suggested I post here about this, because I might get more help. I have noticed that since I heard this happening I am a lot more anxious about it and it seems to be happening more.
All day yesterday I was convinced that I was going to die from a heart attack or something. The more I worried about it the more my chest felt heavy and the more I had the PVC's. It also seems that they are the worst at night when I actually lay down for bed. I don't know if it's because I am thinking about them more or it's because of something else. Anyway I guess that is all I have to ask. I just had one because I am talking about it, but all day long while I am working nothing will happen.
Well thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully I might get some suggestions.
