....continued......Iím still a bridge to far away from finishing and if it gets published Iíll be sure to send you a copy. But I warn you, youíll need a coffee table with rather strong legs to support the Redwood tree needed to bind and compile this oneÖ..

Regards and good health to everyone, again take care Saab and don't give up hope.


Apologies for the length of my double posting..

Thanks for such a great reply, Sanjay. Like everyone, I am looking for a magic wand to make these things disappear, although I know in reality that it will be a long process of overcoming the anxiety that feeds them. Mostly, I am past the feeling that I am about to drop dead, thankfully, just at the stage where I am mostly ok with occasional days of anxiety in various degrees (like yesterday). Keeping busy helps, not dwelling on things, eating lightly, gentle exercise, - all have been beneficial to me. No caffeine at all, no alcohol. I do find that if I don't sleep well, or the kids wake me up really early, then that seems to lead to ectopics/anxiety fairly consistently. RLR's advice has been very helpful - part of the problem has been that ectopics were never explained to me, certainly no-one ever said "they are harmless, cannot damage your heart, will never lead to a heart attack, you don't have heart disease" etc. It was more "Go home..you're fine". I hope eventually to get on top of the anxiety totally and then I believe the ectopics may well disappear. Best wishes.

Several people have talked about your forum but were unable to provide  me with a link or web address.  I then came another forum where members were discussing this site but the administrator deleted the link weeks earlier.  

I took bits and pieces of information I DID have and spent the last several hours googling you.  I'm so pleased I've found you but now completely exhausted and must rest.  Shocked

Hello everyone!

I am new here. Just started posting a couple days ago about extra beats (pvc's) and the craziness it causes!  Then somehow I went off on some other medical tengent (MS) and between that, pvc's, potential dx's, my mind is going 100 mph and I am scared!  

BUT, I know that someday I will cope better.  I cope somewhat ok, in that sometimes I can ignore the pvc's, but the past 3 days they have been really bad!

Enough of that!

I look forward to meeting you all. I have 3 children (ages (girl 7), (boy 4) and another (girl 3).  And another big kid, my husband.  hehe.

I am going to school to become an RN.  have a year left to go!  Been a long road, especially with having kids in between school, heath problems, but it only makes one stronger I think!

Good luck to you all in dealing with these pvc's/pac's.  I honestly think "Acceptance" is the key (as I have been told many, many times), but its the getting there that is hard.

With each other's support and RLR's knowdledge and reassurance, we WILL get there.  it will take time, but WE CAN DO IT!

I am thinking of you all as you go through this.  Know that you are definitely NOT alone, even in the deepest times when you think you are.

Hugs to everyone..

Hello everyone!

I recently viewed this site because of a recommendation from a member of a menopause site.  What great info here! Smiley I have been having pvc's, flutters, and all sorts of uncomfortable beats for many years.  I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse about 30 years ago and started on a beta blocker after 6 months of panic attacks.  I think I have read every book on the subject!  Shocked But I really like the explanations on this site.  I, too, have premature beats when I exercise, some days worse than others.  But I get on the treadmill everyday--it really does help.  I am not a runner, but a moderate walker.  Lately the premature beats have been occurring at night, keeping me from sleeping well. Sometimes if I get up and move around the beats go back to "normal", whatever that is!  Tongue  But I would rather exerience the off-beats that the flutters and panic.  Along with the heartbeats and anxiety, I have IBS, reflux and severe headaches at times.  And now I know how these are connected.  Taking just one day at a time helps keep life in perspective. Thanks for all the information that you provide!  It really is a great service.

Hi all,
Came here from recommendation from a menopause website.

I'm 55 was was healthy until peri and all hell broke loose.  Had a few episodes of SVT necessitating going to the ER, but none recently.  

But I do have heart pounding which keeps me awake, and more recently a faster, mostly regular HR that seems weaker than normal with episodes of SOB when walking only short distances.  Yet a week or so ago I walked a brisk 2 miles/day for 4 days in a row and felt great.

When these recent episodes happen I get so scared that the anxiety goes into panic.  But most definitely the anxiety and panic do not come first.  They kick in when these heart things and SOB start up.

The only test I haven't had is a cardiac cath.  From what I understand all those other tests can look fine but you can still have a blockage.
So I don't believe them when they say I'm fine, yet these things keep happening.

Anyway, glad to be here, hoping to learn a lot.

Cindy

Hello,

I am a 47 year old female who started having heart "fluttersa' about 8 months ago, as well as several other different sensations.
As with most of you I was petrified, so I went to my family Dr and he ordered a serries of GI tests including the barrium test. It was concluded that I have GERD and he started me on Nexium.
He refered me to a cardioogist for the irregular heart rhythmn. I had an ECG done that I was told was irregular, that it looked like something was "archaic" no idea what that meant. So a nuclear stress test was next, well I have asthma so they had to chemically induce me. Once again the tests showed that the "stress" portion of the test was abnormal SO my cardiologist ordered a heart catheter. I was mortified!!!! What a scary procedure.
The weird thing is that per the cardiologist my heart is sound, no blockages at all.
I do however have a congenital heart defect on the left side of the heart, nothing to be 'concerned" about I was told i was just wired differently.
So how can I have an irregular ECG and stress test but then my heart be sound per the cath?
I am told that my PVC's and PAC's are benign.
So after all the time and money spent that's all I get is "don't worry, they are benign." No explanation as to what may be causing them at all. I had to start researching myself. I have read every article I can find, i have joined every forum I could find,all in hopes of better understanding what is going on.
I have come to know most of my personal triggers and to avoid them.
On days that they just seem inevitable I have learned not to panic. The one thing I cannot control is how bad I feel after a long run of PAC's and PVC's. I am exhausted, I yawn alot and my chest muscles hurt like someone punched me for days afterwards.
I am hoping that by learning to control my GERD I can contol the irregular heartbeat to a degree. I am also going to start trying different supplements like magnesium, fish olis and CoQ10. I don't want to take the Beta Blockers that my cardiologist prescribed as the side effects seem to be to much of a risk for me to want to try.

I am glad to have found this site and read that I am not alone.
