CSA, sorry I might have skipped that info but I'm wondering how old are you and do you have any heart issues besides the pvcs and pacs?
I get skipped beats a lot but I rarely feel them, when I take my pulse I feel a skip quite often actually but it dont bother me that much , i know with being anxious and worried about them , it actually increases the pvcs.
I take my pulse and it does go high during attacks like 170s so I know how you feel , I constantly obccess about my heart rate sometimes resting its in the 90s :(, reading your posts seems that your pulse is always good , that's good,
I know one thing that's helped me with palpitations ,
• no big and heavy meals , when I go out with my family I don't even eat there because I don't want palpitations . It sucks but at least I can enjoy our family's outing in peace with out pounding heart .
•no chocolate and coffee
• no alcohol
I'm not sure if you tried any of these things , but it's worth a try making changes to your diet and seeing if that helps .
No problems that I know of. The doctor has taken several blood tests on me in the last decade (about
one every 9 months) and the results have never suggested anything. She said I had slightly elevated cholesterol but was not concerned about
She was concerned about
high blood pressure, but she has since changed her mind and now feels it is a side effect of anxiety after seeing a year of me charting my blood pressure at home. She doesn't like that it stays in the 130-140/80-90 range, but she said that she considers that a high normal, but even it could come down without medication.
I have noticed in the last few days a very distinct difference. I relaxed. Not just a little relaxed, but completely relaxed yesterday. Got some good news and I actually felt my body release tension for the first time in what seemed like months. Yesterday I may have had ONE skipped beat after eating, and if it was a skipped beat it was a very minimal one.
So, I think anxiety spurs them on, and I think the fuller I get after eating the easier it is for me to actually feel them.
Earlier today I had one but it was more of the pleasant variety where something good happened and I felt the rush in my chest that goes along with those you get on Christmas morning or when you're in love or your team makes a game winning play, etc.
I also did bring these up to my doctor, and she shook it off as nothing to be concerned about
. Apparently it goes part in parcel with anxiety disorder/depression. After the reaction I had yesterday I am starting to wonder if I've literally built up tension for years with yesterday being the first time I've let it go in all that time.
