Hi, I'm a cyclist (ride about 300km a week and race) and I've started having palpitations during exercise. Some feel like they are happening almost in a row but I think there is a normal beat between them. They only occur on some rides and at about 70% max heart rate (150bpm)my heart rate monitor shows my pulse rate to remain constant. Does that rule out ventricular tachycardia? Should I be worried? Started off as just a few palps but now it usually lasts about 10 seconds! No other symptoms apart from that I can feel it beating off in my chest. Tried to feel my pulse when it was happening and felt normal-ish but I was cycling at the same time so couldn't feel it very well. Any help is appreciated
