Do ventricular beats produce a weaker or fainter pulse than normal or atrial beats, or not necessarily?
For the past month or so, I have been experiencing severe palpitations during intimate activity. It's gotten so bad that I am thinking about avoiding intimate activity entirely, because I cannot attain orgasm without my heart firing prematurely or breaking into short runs of tachycardia (3-4 beats).
I noticed that when my heart fires prematurely or goes into a short run of tachycardia, the pulse is still palpable on my neck and my wrists. The pulse is not weaker than the normal sinus beats, in fact it is a bit stronger and more forceful. Does that indicate anything? I read that NSVT causes dizziness because of reduced cardiac output, so I assume that the pulse would be weak in NSVT. Does this mean my runs may be supraventricular in nature? Or is the pulse strong simply because the runs are short?
