I have runs of PAC's during exercise. I have had palpatation during exercise for a few years now but over the past 2 mo since I just started getting back in shape I have noticed runs of PAC,s during exercise. I know this because i'm a paramedic and I put myself on a heart monitor at work while i'm running on a treadmill. I do not have symptoms but I keep thinking about them and don't work out as hard as i would like to. Do you think I need to keep my heart rate lower until I get in better shap? Will this get worse or better? Seems they only happen when I get my rate above 160.
My pac's start when my heart rate gets above 140. I also get them a lot when I am sick and especially if I have a fever. I am considering getting an EP study/ablation at the Cleveland clinic. My heart beat returns to normal about 20 after I rest. If I continue pushing myself my heart rate will cut in half. I guess it's in bigimeny.
