For the past week, I've been experiencing episodes where my heart seems to skip a beat every few minutes. I've had palpitations like this occur rarely, but now for hours at a time, it happens almost every two minutes or so. Other than this, I'm not experiencing any other symptoms, no pain or strange feeling.
I've been trying to lose some weight recently and cut back on sodium. I've noticed that my feet get a little swollen if I eat too much and gain weight, but I've dropped from about 200 to 195 pounds the last couple weeks. I'm wondering if maybe my electrolytes are messed up. I've gone back to eating a little more for a couple days, but still having these skipped beats (PVC's?).
I guess I should see my doctor. Wondering how worried I should be about this. I've read that PVCs, if that's what this is, are often sort of benign.
