Palpations sensation but normal heart rate/blood pressure

Hi

I had a previous case of tackycardia and received ablation treatment around ten years ago.  I am now feeling some very strange symptoms, strange in the way that I feel like my heart is fluttering and irregular but all tests reveal no problems.

I have been experiencing these symptoms for around a month and have not felt well, lacking in energy mostly.  I have been to the doctors numerous times and had ECG and blood pressure tests which reveal nothing.  I have been told that its anxiety and I am causing my own symptoms, but I feel I am only anxious because of the symptoms appearing in the first place.  All i can say is my heart does not feel normal, I feel these extra pulses in my chest area and also a tickling feeling.

I just cant understand why I feel like I am having palpations but have a normal heart rate.  Its driving me mad because it feels very uncomfortable when at its worse, but there seems to be no medical way to pick this up.  I am due to have a monitor fitted to me for a week but am sure it probably wont pick anything up, I had one of these tests earlier in the year along with an echocardiogram as have yearly check ups.

I previously had a case of left ventricular tackycardia, its was not dangerous but a complex rhythm to cure.  My question is this, is it possible that these extra pulses I am feeling are old electrical pathways from my previous condition that are being prevented from interfering with my sinus rhythm because of the treatment I received?  Should an ECG pick up all electrical activity in my heart or is it possible they would miss anything that deviates from the sinus rhythm?  are their any other tests available to me?

thanks for any help
Ritchie

Were you having symptoms while they did the ECG's? If not, then they didn't see what was happening. Did you wear a monitor for a day, a week, a month? Depending how often your symptoms occur, then a Holter (24 hour) or an event (up to a month) monitor would be needed to catch what's going on in there.

I feel the symptoms continuously to some extent, when its not as intense it feels like a fluttering sensation.  I had this when I did my ECG, also when I went into accident and emergency.  At its worse it feels more aggravated, like its going all over the place, but my pulse is normal, if not a bit higher than usual.  So I'm stuck really, I'm just getting told there is nothing wrong but I know my own body.  something doesn't feel right in there.

thanks for the reply.

Look up fasciculation. Perhaps you're having some small bundle of muscles twitching deep in the chest.
