Holter Monitor

Just had holter monitor which stated that I had 26,664 pacs per 24hr. period. My stress echo was negative. Already on Cardizem 240mg ER. I also have extreme bouts of fatigue. Can this many palpitations make you really tired? Cardiologist is either going to increase the Cardizem or add another med.

That's a lot of pacs.  I would not doubt they would make you feel tired.  The heart is not beating at a normal pace.  It is irregular.  Besides the meds I would try to work on any stomach issues you may have.  Acid reflux can add to our ectopic beats.  As well avoid all caffeine, cut back on sugars and carbohydrates and drink lots of water and see if they lessen a bit for you.  I hope they settle down.  Maybe consider an ablation if some of the things I mentioned don't help.
