Hi, I have been lurking here a few weeks. I was glad to find this community. 3.5 weeks ago woke at 4am feeling horrendous with my heart thudding in my chest. Ended up going to GP and to hospital, told by both that I had an ectopic beat. I felt like death warmed up - had no energy for two weeks. Gradually got better and the intensity of the ectopics has diminished but after a rapid improvement over the first two weeks I am still stuck with this 24hrs a day.
Had all the blood tests, all normal, echocardiogram normal, chest xray normal, Holter monitor showed normal sinus rhythm with 4000 PVCs over the 24hrs.
I am now waiting to see a cardiologist but have been told to just get on with life as normal but I don't feel normal. After the second week I had convinced myself it was going to gradually die off but I have felt rubbish the last couple of days. I am finding it hard to sleep because I can feel my heart doing dodgy things and it's really distracting.
I have completely stopped caffeine and alcohol. Have started eating bananas like they are going out of fashion. Taking magnesium citrate.... Haven't noticed any of that really helping. Slow breathing sometimes helps a bit, maybe
Not sure what I am asking really - I guess I just wanted a moan 😢. I am also suffering from things I believe to be related to perimenopause. I just want this to all go away.
