PVC happening alot

I have had these for quite sometime now, I think they are PVC but I could be wrong. Best way I can describe it is after a normal heart beat, it beats again right after out of rythum, then pauses for a second and continues normally.

Usually I would get this maybe once or twice a day but within the past few weeks, its happening way more frequently. Today as an example, on average I get one once every 5 or so minutes. Also had "attacks" i guess you could call them, where they happen every 5-10 seconds for about 10-20 minutes.

I watched the movie "Seven Pounds" where a character is dieing from a heart issue. One scene in the movie you could hear her heart beating and it did the exact thing that happens to me, the irregular beat and pause. I just got me thinking. I read this can be caused by stress, I am a student in college and exams are next week, so my guess its that. But they seem to be happening way to often to be healthy.

I do suffer from Pectus excavatum and have had the nuss bar procedure almost 2 years ago. Dunno if this would be related.

I'm sure college exams can cause some heart rhythm issues, don't remember it doing that to me, but that was a long time ago too.

You've go me on the "Pectus excavatum" so I can't comment on that subject...I haven't taken time to look it up.

I think you should have a check-up and by a doctor who can do an EKG (Electrocardiogram).  If you heart is doing the rhythm "thing" full time, it should be possible to catch it on the EKG.  In the mean time you may want to consider taking an aspirin (or 1/2) a day with a meal.  Too, try to focus on studying for exams, not fussing and thinking "I should be studying".

Good luck with the heart rhythm and exams.
