For the past months I have been dealing with many heart worry issues. I had all of the heart tests possible and the doctor said that I have pacs(sometimes with sinus tachycardia) and then also PSVT. Now, I have figured that my PSVT is triggered by the PACS, that most of them are triggered by stomach issues.
My question is, when you gets the skipped beats, do you feel it in different places on your body? I can feel my skipped beats as thumping sensations in different parts of my body. From my abdomen, to the back of my head, top of my head and other different places like the upper part of my stomach and sometimes my testicles. Sometimes, when it is on my head, I feel it either as a thump, or as a sharp painful sensation that comes together with the skipped beat. It will either come as a hard thump or a sharp ''nerve like pain'' at the other parts of my body too. I talked to a ton of doctors about it and no one is able to tell me what this thing that I feel is. I know that it my skipped beat that I feel, but I am not sure why sometimes it hurts or why I feel it in different parts of my body.
Any ideas? It kinda freaks me out because I am not sure if it might be dangerous or not.
I don't feel them anywhere else except my chest. I can feel the difference between PVCs and PACs. The latter hits with less force and the pause is less than a PVC. There is also never any pain associated with them. When I had SVT, before my ablation, I swore I could feel a head rush running up the back of my neck to my head. But I now realize that was just a reaction to the sudden onset of SVT and that there was no heart/brain connection occurring. Is it possible this is what you're feeling as well?
I am not sure. It really feels that it is the skipped beat that I am feeling. I realized it mostly, because when it happens, I can put my fingers where it is happening and actually feel the skipped beats on my veins/vessels.
I talked to my cardio today about it too, and the only thing that he told me was that it is probably from the vessels constricting and then dilating with the forceful beat that causes the actual pain.I just cannot understand/realize, why it is happening. He told me that he thinks it is nothing to worry about and truth is that I had echos, stress tests(2), EKGs(while it is happening and while not, around 30), blood works, holter, event monitor and everything. The only thing that I saw on the event monitor results when I feel that, is either PACS or sinus arrhythmia. But nothing serious though, as the doctor says.
I also feel the beats on my chest, and I do not care that I can feel them, I just do not know why they feel painful. Sometimes I think it might be from muscles or nerves, but they are the same with my hear beat.
