Yes, many people have these random extra beats triggered in any number of ways. It really isn't significant in an otherwise healthy heart. It is very possible the lack of sleep may be partly the cause or maybe poor diet from being too busy. Exertion can bring them on for me and sex involves exertion so it isn't uncommon there either. I would try to not worry too much. Work on your stress, drink lots of water, watch anything that upsets your stomach and do a proper warm up and cool down before exercise and see if it helps. I know they can be distracting and annoying but try to do your best to ignore them if you can. Take care.
Thank you for your reply to my post. I am trying to go vegan and excersize more get good sleep and try to limit stress which is the hardest for me. My blood pressure may be a problem when I get stressed. Your right, we can only do the best we can and hopefully things will get better. God bless
Hey Sonny372! Of course this isn't a diagnosis, but your description sounds A LOT like it could be postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). Online, it says it is rare but it is actually rarely diagnosed. There's a facebook group called POTS and there are thousands of people in it. You might want to look into the group, learn about the "poor man's tilt" to test if your heart rate is going up 30 or more beats upon standing, and learn more details. People can have exercise intolerance, have temperature regulation issues, and other details. Sometimes people get a flare and will become fatigued from taking a hot shower because of the nerve stimulation involved. Not many doctors know about POTS, so you need to find a doc that knows what is up if you think you have POTS. People can get POTS from a virus, bad reaction to meds, EDS, pregnancy, chiaria malformation, an accident, and many other sources. If you have POTS it can be scary until you know what it really is. Some people are diagnosed by neurologist (since it is actually a neuro problem) or cardiologists. But be warned, many doctors, even cardios, just brush it off or say it is in people's heads, so you have to hunt for a doctor in the know. The average POTS patient takes years to get diagnosed and they almost always look perfectly healthy from the outside.
