PVC's, chaotic contractions, nothing to worry about?
Just a short story (my story). To keep things simple, I'll try to keep it as short as possible. I'm from Belgium (EU), 38 year old female. Suffering from depression since 1996. Weight-gain due anti-depressivants, now trying to step some weight off ;). Diagnosed with a slight form of cardiomyopathy (dilated) in 2005 and the usual pvc's, vt, bigeminy and trigeminy. Now the last months I feel some hard bumps and beats. Yesterday I was lying on the seat in the livingroom and all of a sudden I got my heart pounding irregular (I was lying in a 'bundle', not stretched out). It only stopped when I start to move. I got this several times now the last months but the cardiologist and the housedoctor say it's nothing to worry about. I wonder how they know since they've been not registered on a ECG yet. I've had all the cardiac tests done back in 2005/2006, electrofysiologic test (which was hell) as well. I'm on a regular check at the cardiologist and the housedoctor. Is there anybody out there who suffers the same? Thanks for your support. I'm really scared of dying all of a sudden... I got panic attacks and hyperventilation, and I know it's a vicious circle which I try to break...
