Palpitations only at night after 3 hours

37-year old male. The post title speaks for itself. I am not anxious, neither depressed. Yet I still get palpitations after about 3 hours lying in bed at night. Yes, every single night. The only way to stop them is to raise my torso. If I lie down again, they start almost immediately once again. If I wait vertical a few hours, then often I am able to fall asleep again (and maintain it).

Although it might sound a relatively small problem, it has completely ruined my daily routine. I am only able to get to work in the afternoons. I used to sleep 8-9 hours. Now I can only sleep 3 between midnight and 3am and - if lucky - other 3 between around 8 and 11 am.

ECG findings: QRS 116, QTc 444.
Mild MVP.
Mild pectus excavatum.

Re: Palpitations only at night after 3 hours

Hey I'm also experiencing palpitations ONLY at night between 12am and 8am. It is truly horrible. Sitting up does nothing for me, I actually have to stand up or crouch. I actually take beta blockers which seem to have worsened them. May I ask what your resting heart rate is? I read somewhere that a slow heartrate or vagal stimulation can induce pvcs. The vague nerve takes over at rest/night/after meals.
