Question: I am a 53 year old female. I am a non smoker, don't drink, weigh 124lbs am 5ft 6inches. I have a history of SVT
and PVC's and PAC's. I have been on Tenormin
since age 23. I have always had some skipping issues with my heart since about sixth grade. I have worn numerous halter monitors and event recorders. The dr's always assure me it is just an annoyance more than dangerous. Lately it has been feeling differently like it is just quivering or shaking instead of beating. I know the dr says it really doesn't skip, that it is really extra beats and is the pause
I feel, but I can actually put my finger on my pulse and feel it not beating and just quivering or skipping. It isn't the pause I am feeling, it's like it isn't really beating at all, just quivering. I have to cough
to get it to quit. I read about runs of twos and threes and read where these can be dangerous but to me it feels like I have runs of six, eight, or more.Don't know if it is back to back pvc's or pauses of longer than three or four seconds, but feels really weird.
