Yes, they happen like this to some.  I believe I recall you mentioning you have acid reflux.  I would really make sure you are addressing that as well any stress or anxiety.   I get the sense from the posts you have been making that this is a bit fearful to you.  It is understandable.  Anything with the heart is pretty scary.  That said, you don't want to let these thing rob you of your peace of mind.  If you are struggling to deal with these harmless extra beats you might want to consider seeing a professional to talk about your fears so you can get your life back.  You will likely also see a decline in the ectopics as well.  But do also address your stomach issues as they can be a big trigger as well.  But when all else fails just do your best to ignore the beats.  Easier said than done but they truly are deemed harmless in a healthy heart.  Annoying yes, but totally harmless.  stay strong.

thank you, i have had these since i was in my 20 now am 53 so i am sorta used to them, but this time it came with no warning, no stress, no acid reflux, just woke up feeling them, now i did have lots air in chest and burped all day with the flutters and my stomack got up set but pretty sure the flutters started first. guess when i have had them to come and last 8 hours and be every 3-4th heart beat i have been under stress and knew why it was happening but to just wake up with them , went to bed happy i just dont understand why . a few ok but not like i had them, i guess thats what i am trying to find out is if anyone elsa has them like that.

i have had heart checked out and its good, but dr said next time they come like that dont wait for them to go away go to er have them check them to make sure they are the same and no problem.

i think they must of been ok because with as much as i had and as long as i had they didnt kill me. right .

thank you again for your time. .heart

I don't have acid reflux myself but I do notice gas with mine and I usually get them the strongest after i eat so our stomachs for some reason do have some sort of a connection at least for some of them.  It is likely your acid reflux kicked them off and now maybe they just need a bit of time to settle down.  I am sure they will again.  But to be honest I don't think anyone knows for certain why they go off.  All sorts of theories out there but I surmise some cells of the heart got triggered once after some sort of irritation and now they can spark off for any old reason not even if they have to.  Extremely annoying for those of us who feel them but what can you do.  I will say I had a bout of really super bad ectopics after I had an ablation for an svt.  I was having probably around 15,000 a day and it was making me physically sick so sick I didn't eat for a couple of days and then they settled down.  So the not eating for some reason helped.  Maybe switch to a bland diet for a couple of days and see if that helps.  But you aren't alone.  If yo search the site for pacs and pvcs you will likely come up with all sorts of posts of people in the same situation so you are in good company at least.  Hang in there.  I am sure they will settle down again for you.

hi again thank you foryour help, they have pretty much gone away after the 8 hours of them i have had a few here and there but not in a row for 8 hours so can deal with them, as i always have . guess it just bothers me that for no reason they came on and stayed 8 hours and than went away , and i cannot find a reason why they did that. unless i ate the wrong food sasauge friday night and while i was sleeping it up set my acid reflux and they came from that?

wow 15,000 is way more than i ever want . when i was having the 9 weeks straight all day long the monitor recoreded 3000 a day and i feel everyone of them so that was more than i wanted . lol 2 more than i want.

i love this site its great helps us to relax talk to others who has what we have and compare. have a great evening

Luckily the 15,000 didn't last too long but I have periods where I have around as many as you though they aren't as intense as they were for me right after my ablation but I do suspect that the bout I had with the 15,000 was tied into some stomach issues because I had a lot of gas and after the 2 days of not eating the gas was gone so I think that had something to do with the amount being so high.  Anyways do stop by to talk anytime.  Someone is always around.
