It feels something like this (the string in the middle is the nsvt)

So would you say that if I didn't feel anything unusual in my chest and that I just felt a momentarily fast but regular wrist pulse, that doesn't sound like NSVT to you? My wrist pulse was: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
When I have nsvt, it is not always strong. It feels as though my heart is tumbling with no real rhythm. It's as if my heart is tumbling after itself, like a bowl of jiggle jello. Then, all of a sudden, it catches itself and goes back into a pattern. When I listen with a stethoscope, there is no real pattern, just all jumbled. If I place my hand over my heart, or check my pulse, it's the same thing. Kinda tumbly, jittery, no rhythm. There are no real beats until it kicks back into gear.
Thank you so much for your response. I'm going to call my cardiologist tomorrow, but I'm trying not to worry until then.
From other posts I've read, it seems that NSVT is relatively benign in a otherwise healthy heart. Is that what your doc says too? I guess I just wonder if NSVT is likely to become sustained VT - or do the two conditions have different causes.
I CLEARLY feel the NSVT beats in my chest cavity. My doc says that she can feel them in my pulse. They are very strong and feel like the normal pvc's, just sequentially irregular strong beats.
