I'm new here.
I've had a few ectopics for a few years "Don't worry they aren't dangerous" the man said.
Recently though the frequency has suddenly gone up to a max of 40 per minute, and I feel as rough as others here. Orrible!
Flecainide 200mg/day helps somewhat. What I find odd is that I feel a bit nauseous and "pumped up" before an episode starts, and after it finished, maybe half an our later. Anyone else?
The depressing part is that it looks like I'll just have to put up with it.
All I can contribute is that I found a free phone app called "Heart Rate Monitor" (pink heart with a white trace line through) with which you can record an optically derived finger trace for, say, 1 minute.
Here's a partial trace screenshot which shows about three of the bad pairs with the second pulse "missing", though there's a small hump, followed by normal pulses. It takes some practice to get a steady trace but you can store the traces and show them to your cardio person if they need convincing. The time is recorded and you can name them you how you like. The "30" I added means there were 30 of those bad pairs in that minute.
The "missing" pulse coincides exactly with what you feel at a pulse-point on your wrist.
