So I have had palps since I was 15, and am now 24. Though unfortunately I have been diagnosed with a slight anxiety issue (who wouldn't with all these irregular beats!) ive had multiple ekg's, a holter monitor when I was 16, and even had a lovely ride to the ER in an ambulance when I had my one and only full scale panic attack where they monitored my heart for quite some time while it was pounding away but they didn't notice anything. ive also had an echo that checked out okay. The ambulance and Echo happened within the last year. My cardiologist has not been able to pick up the palps, which can be quite disturbing and often at times, which has me a little concerned. How do I know these are just benign PVC's? twice since I was 14 I had these crazy 5 second "runs" of erratic feeling heart beats that felt weaker than a PVC. My concern is, am I just having benign PVC's like my cardiologist says? Or am I having episodes of afib? Because when I read about the symptoms of afib, they sound an awful like what someone with PVC's has.
Thanks for all your help.
