Re: Palpitations with no other symptoms
Paranoid? Definitely not. These are uncomfortable and scary feelings, which although usually benign, cause a great deal of stress to those of us who experience them! It has been my experience that heart skips, jumps, palpitations, etc., come in all shapes and sizes. I have had thuds, what feels like flutters, and plain old very rapid heartbeat. Unfortunately for me, sometimes the PVC's will trigger a run of SVT. Also, my episodes can be influenced by what I eat, what position I'm lying in, lack of sleep, and most of all - STRESS. As strange as it sounds, I eat very small amounts of food because when my stomach is too full or irritated by something (warmer than room temperature, spicy, acidic, etc.), it makes my PVC's worse. Did this happen after you ate? You have had the reassurance that you have benign heart arrythmias (like I have), but it doesn't make the episodes any less stressful or scary. You mentioned being on medication for PVC's. What is it and are you still taking it? If not, maybe talking to your doctor about getting back on it would be helpful. I was just about to post a question about that myself. Maybe you can answer that one for me : - ) Lily
