Does anybody know if there is a possible link between poor sleep/insomnia and heart health ?
The reason is I have always been poor sleeper due mainly to work shift patterns. I also have a slightly obstructive airway by way of a long suffered deviated septum. Over the past couple of years I have been getting heart thumps and PVC's almost every night, but only when I try to fall asleep or am actually asleep when they wake me up. I have had alot of tests from a cardiologist who can't find anything wrong and says my heart health is good. But its the lying down and "drifting off " seems to trigger the palpitations....it sounds crazy but it seems that sleep brings them on in some way.
