What Causes Heart Palpitations While Experiencing Severe Anxiety?
I have also noticed that my skips calm down if i exercise.
Please see detailed answer
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
I understand your concerns & will try to help you.
Ectopics can be a normal finding in a normal heart. But frequent ectopics (>8/min), should be evaluated & if these ectopics are causing problems like palpitations, skipped beat, they should be treated.
Your holter also is fine except VPC's. I'll still advice for some more tests, 2D Echo & a TMT to see for change in these ectopics with exercise.
Anxiety also causes palpitations, so I'll recommend you for some antianxiety medication also.
If the palpitations & missed beat still bother, we generally prescribe Tab Betaloc 25mg once daily to our patients. But you need to monitor your bp with this.
Relax & you will be fine.
Explained the ECG in other question
I explained the ECG in other question you asked.
They were only ectopic beats & not very significant. Still get a 2D Echo & a TMT(Tread Mill test) done because these ectopics are best interpreted on exercise.
You need not ask separate question & you have 2 free follow up question with every question.
So you can save your money & ask follow up question.
I'll try to help you in all possible ways.
Take a anti anxiety medication
You could ask any number of questions you want to ask.
Coming to your question. Anxiety do cause palpitations & tachycardia. If echo is normal than these ectopic beats are benign & you need not to worry about it.
You can also take some anti anxiety medication if the anxiety is too much to trouble you & you will be absolutely fine.
Be happy, be cheerful & relaxed. Stop taking any stress & you will see all these palpitations & ectopics will go.
