So the story line goes like this. Back in 1997 I was enjoying a beautiful day on Put-In-Bay island. About half way through the day I started feeling a little "flutter" in my chest. Now a brief side note before I get too far along is that I am pretty sure that I had noticed little "hiccups" like this before, but not that lasted all day as was the case here. So that evening while checking into a hotel I began to get nervous that my heart was still beating irregular so we went to the ER at Magruder Hospital. They hooked me up and that was the first time I ever had heard the term PVC/PAC. Now incidentally when I was in high school there was a time when I was told that I might have a heart murmur, but that was not found to be the case at least not upon further check ups. So upon returning from my trip I went to my regular doctor and I showed him my record from Magruder. He set me up with a Holter monitor which 20 years ago were a lot larger then they are today. What a pain that thing was. Anyway, through the years I have managed to live a pretty normal life with occasional PVC that frankly have subsided sometimes for what has felt years at a time. But about 7 years ago I started having PVC a lot more often and I of course started worrying. I have been a active cyclist for many years including racing and I have completed many charity rides in excess of 200 miles. I like to think/believe that I am in pretty good shape, but I am also more proactive about my health now then I ever have been. So here is where my situation is now. There have been periods time in the past couple years where I will literally have PVC heart beats all day long. I also noticed for the first time (I think) a couple PVC before the "compensatory" beat, where I think is has always just been one. I have never felt faint, sick, light headed, shortness of breath or anything ever. Had EKG, Holter, and Echocardiagram. Heart doctor says I am ok to continue working out and living life. Now here is my ultimate question, I have never had a stress test and would like to know from some people who have and just the other night I woke up to use the bathroom and my heart decided to do something new (I think). It started to feel a flutter in my chest and when I felt my neck for a pulse it was if I was getting random heart beats that didn't have a pulse along with random beats with a pulse. It was if my heart could get "traction". All I know is that it freaked me out, felt different the ever before and lasted a couple minutes. Any input to my short novel here would be appreciated. Thank you!
