PAC's vs PVC's

I always get PVC's and we know what to expect when you get them. It's the same feeling and there is a huge difference between Pac's and Pvc's and I know alot of you know this.

My question is, the other day I got a PAC that nearly knocked me out. It was a couple skipped beats that made my heart go a little faster for a couple seconds and during this I got REALLY lightheaded.. not dizzy, just REALLY lightheaded, I thought I was going to pass right out because I was standing when it happen. But once it passed I was fine. It lasted maybe 6 seconds if that. But when the PAC happened, my whole head felt like blood rushed to it and then it was fine after a couple seconds. I have only had a couple PAC's in the past that were THAT strong. I think PAC's are worse then PVC's. Have any of you ever had that happen where the PAC almost knocked you on your butt?

Had all tests done, everything came back normal from the past.. I am on Beta Blockers for the PVC's. It's just this certain PAC scared me for some reason. It only happen to me once before that bad.

Re: PAC's vs PVC's

Karen,
I have had the same thing. It's like you black out for a second and then you are scared after it happens. Well I don't know about all the PVC and PAC stuff because I haven't been to the Dr yet. I started feeling my heart skip while I was pregnant last year and they have gotten worse. How do I know which one I have? I feel it in my throat sometimes when it skips and then when I bend over I get one and then I feel the head pressure and then it is gone. I have done research online about skipped beats and they said that anxiety can bring them on and I have been quite anxious after I had my daughter this past 4th of July. And so what do you think I should do? I would have a good day and then one where I have the skipped beats all day and then I worry when I have them which I know does not help. What did your Dr. tell you and what can I expect when I go? Do I have to go to a cardiologist or just to my practitioner at first? Thank you!
