Hi, my name is Rebecca.

 Lately I've been noticing that my heart has been skipping beats.  I don't really feel it in my chest so much as when I take my pulse.   I don't know if I'm worrying myself into ectopic beats or if there's really something wrong with me.  I've been to a cardio and he seems to think there's nothing wrong, but i'm almost always on the verge of tears thinking about this. My grandmother, whom I was very close to passed away in February and everyone is telling me that stress brought these on and I supposed they could be right, but I'm so scared of having a heart attack that I'm pretty constantly in a state of near anxiety attack. I don't know what to do.  I have another appointment with my cardiologist on April 29th for an Echo and a Holter but I'm not sure I can wait until then because I'm freaking out. I don't think I have chest pain, but then I think about it and convince myself I do.  I don't think I'm having trouble breathing til I think about it.  I'm a mess.  I was prescribed xanax but I really want to deal with my anxiety without drugs.  I think mostly I need people to talk to who don't think I'm nuts and that there's nothing wrong with me, because even though These PVCs/PACs may not be dangerous, they're certainly ruining my life. :(
