I have been getting both atrial ectopic beats, atrial tachycardia and ventricular ectopic beats which seem to be getting more frequent since my ablation for SVT about a year ago.I feel my heart pause, I feel extra beats, small runs of the tachycardia that just comes out of the blue. I can't find a trigger factor, and when they occur I get a burst of adrenalin because it stresses me out which then makes them worse. Lately I have found they get worse after eating and even just mild excercise like walking up stairs. I used to be alot fitter but this has made me to anxious to excercise. I have been prescribed bisoprolol 2.5mg daily which has not helped apart from slowing down the reaction of increased heart rate when the ectopic stresses me out. I have had all the tests, holter monitor, event recorder etc and the Doctor says they are nothing to worry about. I do worry that the ventricular ectopic could turn into a more serious arrythmia. Has anyone got any ideas if there is anything else that can help as I feel I am at the end of the road with Doctors and feel this is consuming my whole life, always thinking about it. I would be grateful for others experience and anything that that may have helped reduce them. Thanks
