Is it normal to have ectopic heart beats after a stressful day?
palpitations are common in a stressful situation
Thank you for asking on HCM!
Regarding your concern I would like to explain that in your stressful situation it is quite normal to have such unpleasant feelings.
Palpitations and even some rare ectopic beats may frequently accur in healthy persons when there is an increased amount of anxiety and psychological stress, as well as physical one.
So do not worry about that! Just relax!
Remember that your heart tests have shown a normal situation. Rare PACs are unimportant.
It doesn't seem actually to be any obvious data, that may lead you to a dangerous situation.
Hope to have been helpful!
I am at your disposal for any other questions.
Feel free to contact me!
Just have some rest and a good sleep.
Hi again XXXX!
Your rare PACs doesn't make any differences. There is not any threats for any complex arrhythmia after that.
Excessive exhaustion, and stress may result in a lower threshold for palpitation, as well as ectopic heart beats feelings.
You don't have to worry at all!
Just have a prolonged rest with a good sleep, and a plenty of drinking (water, etc).
Wish you a pleasant relax! Dr. Iliri
Your heart rate reaction is physiologically normal.
Looks that both of your explanations are the obvious reasons for your heart rate racing.
Getting immediately out of bed, and hurrying upstairs results for sure in a physiological sinus tachycardia.
Anxiety for changing a resting state to a physically active one, is also another contributor.
You don't have to worry about that.

It is a normal heart reaction.
Hi dear XXXX!
The fact that you have experienced palpitations, may have created the idea of PACs occurrence.
It is difficult without monitoring to differentiate if they were lots of PACs, or just a pure continuing sinus tachycardia.
In your situation, those feelings may have normally happened, as it has been a stressful period, starting with indigestion, also abrupt getting out of couch, to climbing stairs.
Remember, PACs are generally innocent, they do not harm you, they are not dangerous. If you are looking continuously for them, they will be around.
So, my advice is do don't think too much about PACs,
Greetings! Dr. Iliri
Yes! A heart rate like that is normally possible.
As you are a young and healthy person (32), it is possible for your heart rate to reach even around 180-190 bpm on stressful situations.
If it keeps going on sinus rhythm, there is nothing dangerous.
Wish you good health! Dr. Iliri
