Skipped beats after strenuous exercise??
Any thoughts on what causes PVC's/PAC's after moderate to strenuous exercise. This happens to me usually 2 to 3 hours after a good mountainbike ride. Also, my pulse rate is usually high around 90+ during this recovery time. My heart has been checked out okay but these palps after exercise are really bothersome. They also will last for most of the day once they start. Any ideas what's causing this?

I experience pvc's/pac's when I am exercising. I have had all the cardiac testing and so far everything normal. They really are bothersome, and at times I get nervous about exercising. The fear of bringing them on I guess. Today I started having them frequent and they have left me feeling awful. Good luck with this, I hope you find answers. :)

I try to exercise, even though I have gotten them for decades.  Sometimes I have good luck, sometimes they start during exercise making it close to impossible to keep going.  It is hard enough to get them while acting normal but the exercise induced ones always make me feel worse, for some reason.  Also, no matter HOW much I try to exercise, it seems my endurance has NEVER gotten stronger.  I have no stamina.  I don't know why.

This is confusing to me. I've read that skipped beats can/will occur in patients with a troubled heart after exercise. Well, what's the difference then for those of us that experience skipped beats after exercise in a healthy heart. If skipped beats are a sign of trouble, then that makes me weary that maybe the DR's are missing something and those skipped beats really do mean something even though the DR's say there benign. I've also read that a slow recovery rate after exercise is also an indicator of possible heart disease which I've noticed a lot of folks here on this site have mentioned when they exercise.

What you describe is not what some studies have raised concerns about. If your heart gets down to 90bpm and then has some premature beats for an hour or two, you should be fine. I unfortunatly have terrible rythm trouble in the recovery period (from 0-60 seconds after exercize). Studies have found that with this presentation, I am twice as likely to have a cardiac event. Still not too much of an increased risk but not something I want to have.
