I used to get the occasional skipped beat when I was younger, actually it was pretty rare, but all of a sudden now that I’m 30(female) they have got much worse. I’ve seen a cardiologist and have been through many tests, monitors, you name it, and my heart is normal and everything came back normal. Apparently I’m just one of those people who gets pvcs. I only get a few a day on a regular basis. Every once in a while I go a few days without much of any. And the most I’ve ever had in a day was maybe 20 or so. I know that doesn’t seem like a lot but they’re so forceful that I feel every single one of them. I take a low dose of metoprolol but it doesn’t seem to help much. I hate being on any kind of med but I can’t get by without it. They affect me so bad that I can’t always work or take care of my kids. My question is how am I suppose to live with these things? My regular dr. asked why I worry so much about them if I know my heart is normal and that I’m not going to drop dead. It’s impossible to just ignore because like I said they’re so forceful that they catch me off guard and take my breath away for a second. They’ll stop me dead in my tracks. How are you suppose to ignore that? It feels like your heart stops sometimes. My quality of life has been totally shot because I don’t know how to get past this. For a while I was living in fear. Even though it’s nothing serious they’re still ruining my life and they’re annoying. And even though they might not kill me they still scare me and always will. Any insight, support or extra reassurance on this would be greatly appreciated.
