Palps with hot flashes

Does anyone else have hot flashes through their neck and head when they have a hard skipped beat (PVC)? Sometimes they want to send me into a panic...I really don't like those.

I am not sure if you mean exactly this, but I have (sometimes) a major rush of adrenaline and it can feel like a hot flash up my neck/head. I also get a dizzy sensation that used to scare me because I thought my blood wasn't pumping properly and I was about to pass out......However it seems as thought that, too, is from the adrenaline.  I am having an especially bad two weeks and I think it might be due to the cold.  I cannot seem to tolerate it.  I tolerate heat much better, although any extreme temperature can get my heart skipping...lol

Yep...that's how I feel...I get dizzy and feel like I'm going to pass out which in turn triggers the anxiety. I definitely have too much adrenaline :). I live in east Texas, so it doesn't get super cold here. I do have a very hard time with the Texas heat triggering my palps though. I actually had 3 days last week I didn't have a palp (that I felt anyway) all day. I am on Christmas break from work so I have alleviated a little stress. I did have a blueberry/banana smoothie Thursday night and since then they have been firing like crazy! Do you think everyone has these same troubles they just don't feel them like we do? My doctors have told me this and it seems very logical that not every heart can beat, lub..dub, but I am curious as to what others on this forum think about it. I'm sorry you're not feeling well and I hope yours start settling down soon.

Sometimes my PVCs come in intense bursts of several months' duration with an interval of years between these.  The start is always sudden, and when they begin, I often feel the hot flash at the hairline.   For me, it is definitely related to a the surge of panic (read:  adrenaline) that is closely associated with these events.  When I get the panic under control, I no longer experience the flash.

When the heart goes into event, I'm sure everyone can feel.  It's up to the doctor to tell the patients what's that related to?  The doctor told me that my hot flashed (sweaty) due to menopause.  My pacer did record some events but it is less than 1% so they write it off.

Yes, mine also will come for several months then "mostly" away for months.  I have also had bigeminy twice, once for about 2 weeks and once for 9 weeks.  I don't envy people living in that.  That one was very hard to get used to.  The worst for me is having them while driving.  And yesterday I came home to reading the paper where a veterinarian who was driving with her 6 year old daughter passed out at the wheel d/t arrhythmias.  She had a heart defect from birth, but also had arrhythmias she didn't know about.  Now I'm back to the fear of driving today...and the ice, the wind.  Oh will I live?  Yes, of course I will, but I thought a nice shot of adrenaline will wake me up more than my coffee!
