skips and fast heartbeats

I have had all necessary tests to find out I have a normal heart.  I have suffered terribly over the years over skipped beats and runs of fast beats.  They cannot find anything wrong with my heart.  I even have had 2 EP studies on my instance that something is wrong.

Can you tell me if you think it is normal for a person to have around 100 pauses in there heartbeat a day when you feel it do a double beat or stop and then do a hard beat?  I don't know anyone else that has these horrible things.  I also sometimes (maybe once a month of so) where I can feel my heart just going fast and then pause and then thump and back to normal.  I usually get this for no reason when I am sitting relaxing or going to sleep.  It goes fast for about 20 beats and then goes thump and back to normal.  I have had echo's, holters, stress test, EP study and as I say they find nothing wrong and say I have a normal heart.  Would you say it is a normal heart with all these weird things going on?  Also I wanted to mention that the slightest amount of stress or feeling anxious I will be some weird beats.  Would that be a bad thing do you think?  It stresses me out!

Thanks.

If all your tests are normal I think you are perhaps over-worrying a bit. I don't want to minimize your symptoms but I am very surprised that you have had 2 EP studies (which have some risk) for very little benefit. Perhaps this is an anxiety disorder? I think you should look into that possibility. Good luck to you
