Are PVC's (skipped beats) harmless?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Going through a rough patch on my anxiety at the minute! I've had all these PVC's, chest pain, palpitations etc for the past 3 years but for some reason this morning I have become worried about the missed beats, Ive been told before that they're harmless but im resisting the urge to google as I know i'll see stuff I don't want to, so thought i'd ask on here?

    Totally harmless and your right not to Google, if your still unsure then visit your GP for a firm diagnosis.

      I've had loads of tests on my heart and all come back clear. Just hate these missed heartbeats, it's like your waiting for your heart to come back round again.

    Dont google, you will only scare yourself for no reason.

    get your heart checked by your doctor and when he/she tells you that there is nothing wrong with you, believe him/her!

    Missed heart beats are totally harmless as are all the other symptoms of anxiety. They cannot harm you in any way.

      I've had my heart checked, ive had loads of tests done and all have come back fine but I'm just worried that these missed beats will do be some harm. Just hate how it feels like your hearts stopping! I'm only 23 too, it's stupid I shouldn't be worrying about my heart at this age rolleyes

      it's not stupid, it's anxiety. Look at other posts on the forum, all these people with their hearts stopping, missed beats, skipping beats, chest pains etc.going on for months and sometimes years and yet, none of them have died!! doesn't this suggest something to you?  You may think you are the exception, but this is what they all think too!! It is anxiety, my friend, and nothing but. Ask any doctor or specialist anxiety expert and they will all say the same thing. 'The symptoms of anxiety, although uncomfortable, can do you no harm whatsoever.' heart palpitations, missed beats etc. are classic symptoms of anxiety. This is what you have to contend with - anxiety - and nothing else. Missed beats can do you no harm at all. You are perfectly safe. it just feels horrible.
