Hey all, new to the forum and have read a couple of the threads so know what your all going through but I do have a couple of questions.
I'm getting these ectopic beats what feels like more frequently then I blink, they are highly annoying and uncomfortable.
I don't know if it's PVC or PAC and don't know if one is more dangerous than the other.
My questions are...
can these skipped beats cause false oxygen stats reading? I was on a pulse oximeter looking at the levels and it was going from 99% down to 91% up to 97% down to 90% up to 94% back down to 91 then shoots up to 99%.
My heart rate is not always fast fast the ectopic a could be happening when it's about 87-100 bpm but has gone to 130 before, it fluctuates like the oxygen does sometimes, is this normal?
Had enough going to hospital just to be told ECG picked up ectopic and arrhythmia but not dangerous , how can an arrhythmia not be dangerous?
I've seen a cardiologist who performed a CT of heart and found no sign of CAD and ultra sound looked good.
I've rejected beta blockers
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for reading
Forgot to add I don't feel breathless during the oxygen levels fluctuations
