Hey everyone. So I've been dealing with arrhythmias for almost 3 years now. I noticed it for the first time in Feb 2015. My heart would skip several times in these runs. It would last for maybe 30 sec or so. I eventually wore a monitor for 30 days. They determined what I was experiencing was some SVT and PACs. I've been on Metoprolol now for just over a year. Today, though, I had the scariest run of them I've ever had. I have had a nasty cold lately and have been coughing a lot. My heart has been extra sensitive since getting sick. Anyway, I bent down to grab something from the pantry and coughed at the same time. My heart went absolutely ballistic. It suddenly stated beating at like 170+ bpm and skipped wildly. Scared me to death. The skips were super irregular. Worse than usual. It wouldn't calm down until I'd lied down for a minute. Anyone dealing with this? I'm still shaken. Wondering if maybe it's time to wear a monitor again for a while.
