I was told that this would happen after ablation and at first my heart felt very strange. Now I get a few odd beats a day, which I'm assuming are PACs and PVCs, though I've never identified my irregular heartbeats.
How do people know what sort of beats they are having?
Since I've been reading this forum I've been amazed that so many people seem to know exactly what type of heartbeat they have had.
Throughhout my life with WPW I only ever knew, 'fast racing, or fluttery, or lurching or skipping' etc. That was just they way I identified it myself if I told someone about it, but I had no idea what type of beats they were or what they were doing. Usually I put them all in the category of palpitations as that was really the only medical term that i knew for them
Mostly I didn't even try and name them, I would just notice them and then they were over and I carried on with what I was doing.
I know now from my reading here, that many people have far more severe symptoms than those that i had so maybe they have more input from the medical profession?
