... Were you placed on any new medications? Are you taking any new vitamins/minerals/supplements? Any other notable changes?

... I hear you. I've been having similar problems as of late.
First thing I'd say is that two of the biggest contributors to heart palpitations/PVCs (besides caffeine/sugar) would be fatigue and stress. If either of those have been factors this past week, that could be your culprit. You also mentioned you get them often while lying down; did you notice any pattern in that? ... (10 replies)
... Do you get a racing heart? I had anxiety as a result of a heart problem called SVT (superventricular tacicardi). I never actually had panic attacks, they were actually SVT attacks.

You are so young (36) that a conservative med (like Toprol) should be tried first. It's best to get on top of A-fib before it happens more often. Best to stop it in its track because they say "A-fib begets A-fib"---once... (16 replies)
