Palpitations during exercise

Are palpitations during exercise considered to be more serious than when they occur at rest?

I don't notice palpitations too often during exercise but this morning as I was walking briskly to work, I got a huge one.  You know, the kind that kind of knocks the wind out of you.  It scared me.

I am getting a nuclear stress test on Thursday so hopefully everything is ok but I am so nervous!

In the absence of structural disease, benign beats are benign whenever you get them. Good luck on your test. Let us know how it turns out

I get frequent PACs and occasional PSVT during exercise or under great emotional stress.  I've asked about it numerous times and I've caught this on three Holter monitors.  I keep getting reassurance that these are benign.

My understanding is that extra beats during exertion are a concern only in structural heart defects or coronary disease, as in those cases frequent ectopy might indicate a more serious problem going on.  For those with normal hearts, it's not supposedly an issue.

Nothing like a super thumper whilst trying to exercise though, right?  lol  I know where you're coming from, believe me.
