Hello, I'm a 22 year old female who has unfortunately suffered with these ectopic beats every day continuously for over 4 years. I have been to my GP numerous of times over the years but seem to be shut down every time due to my age and it has been put down to stress and anxiety.
I have these pvc's/ pac's in runs of 6-10 occasionally which are worsening from the odd one or two I used to feel. I can no longer exercise as whenever I finished a game of netball and my heart rate was calming I seemed to get 10+ in a row as I could feel every pause and thud in my stomach and chest.
I had a 48 hour holter monitor 3 years ago but since then they have got far worse and a lot more frequent.
I have been told that they are due to anxiety although feel that I have anxiety because of these ectopics.
Sorry this is so long but I cannot stress how undermining it is to be shut down by a doctor so many times for something I feel is now controlling my life. I feel that due to this I am becoming very low and depressed as a person and would appreciate any feedback.
