Hi Everyone,
I hope your all doing better. I too am a major sufferer of pac's and pvc's. Unfortunately, I will have them forever. They are not life-threatening, only what I make up in my head. Now, saying it to everyone and believing it myself are two different things. I constantly check my pulse, and sometimes the skipped beat (which are actually premature beats, then a pause, then back to normal) will hurt really bad. Also, they can cause dizziness, left arm ache, chest ache, and STILL be ok. I even get Bigeminy and Trigeminy once in a great while, where they skip three times right together. Now that scares the living crap out of me. Anyways, what I have learned from the numerous Dr.'s out there, is that about 80% of the ENTIRE population has these skipped beats from time to time. And in actuality, it is very very rare to find a person whose heart doesn't have a little quirk here and there. Most people, and probably most people who don't have anxiety :) don't notice their heart like we sufferers do. I wish I didn't. I can feel my heart beating as I type this. It does help tremendously when you can get on here and see how many other people there are out here who have this. I just went to a Cardiologist last week to have her convince me my pvc's and pac's were really benign and that I didn't have something severe. (I had numerous EKG's, 2 holter monitors, and and echo, all ok, except very mild mitral valve prolapse, also common) Anyways, she said she didn't think anything was wrong with me, and told me to get on the treadmill and do a stress test so they can see what the heart looks like when my pulse spikes up, because my heart skips more when it's either way low or way high. So I get on the treadmill and have a full blown MAJOR panic attack. I was bawling like a baby, because I didn't want to do anything that made my heart skip. Needless to say, they obviously think I'm just a tad bid on the anxious side and referred me to my Dr. for anxiety. So here I am and trying to figure out how to cope. I'm sorry for the long story, just wanted to give you guys something to smile about, at my expense. And, bye the way, I have anxiety over all my health problems, I seem to be scared of everything right now, but it's funny when it isn't you. Hugs, Michelle
