I don't know if anyone experiences PVC's due to anxiety but let me share this incase anyone else sufferes as I do.
I have been doing pretty good with my PVC's, but yesterday I had one so bad, worse then anything I have had since the onset of my PVC's in May of last year. It lasted like 2-3 seonds and I felt like I might pass out immediately after (I don't know if that is considered having a couplet or not). I was so afraid that after I was able to get myself together I just sat on the couch afraid to move. This was one of those really ugly ones where it feels like your heart stops for a moment and you feel like you are going to drop dead at any second. I just don't know what to do anymore, I am at my wits end!! I feel like nobody can help me, no doctors, therapist, family, NOBODY. I am losing my mind over these things!! I feel like I am going to die from sudden death at any moment now. I mean I literally was in my kitchen talking to my husband and kids and it hit me out of nowhere and I almost dropped to my knees but I was too afraid to DO THAT! I don't know what brought it on either. I went to a dinner party ealier and had some some mango tea, but the host told me it had no caffeine in it!
Has anyone experienced any PVC's like this? I don't mean the hard beats or the thumping, I mean the kind that stop you in your track and make you feel like you are going to drop right then and there? I feel like I am the only one and maybe the doctors are missing something and it will be too late when they do find out what is wrong with me. I have been thru the various tests, worn the monitors and am on a beta blocker for my PVC's; but I can't increase the dosage because it makes me too lethargic and I don't think I get them often enough to take flecanide (sp) or anything like that. Besides, the side effects for antiarrhythmia drugs scare me worse then the PVC's.
Everyone keeps telling me it's anixety, but I just can't believe that anxiety can make me feel like THIS. I know the "usual" signs of anxiety, i.e. fast heart beats, nausea, feeling like you are going to fanit,-which I also experience, but the irregular beats are a whole 'nother animal. Please someone help me out, I really need to feel like I am not going to die from these things and leave my three kids and husband. I have been in tears over this and am extremely depressed!
I have experience a tremendous amount of stress over the past few years, but I have no idea anymore if that is what is wrong with me. Folk, I feel like I am coming out of my skin-I am just that afraid!!!!
