I've been having palpitations on and off for many years. Just recently, I've seemed to notice them more frequently so I went to see a cardiologist. They did an EKG which came back normal and my blood pressure was 110/73 which was shocking to me. I felt like it was super high while I was there.
He listened to my heart beating and said he heard two palpitations which I could not feel. That makes me wonder how many I'm really having that I don't feel.
He said I'm having PVC's or PAC's which are very common and nothing to worry about.
I go in two weeks for an echo stress test and full blood work. I just wore a Holter monitor for 24 hours, too.
Even though I believe what he was saying, I'm still so scared. I feel okay while I'm sitting or laying down but
when I get up to simply walk across the room, I feel a bubbly sensation in my upper abdomen (heart area) and feel very anxious and jittery. Why???? I don't understand it.
I, too, am afraid to do any sort of exercise. I'm afraid that this feeling will start up again and not stop or a palpitation will start and not stop. I'm hoping if all of my tests come back normal, that might be enough to convince me but as of right now.....I'm so anxious and nervous about all of these feelings.
