I've been having palpitations for the last two months. I used to get em every once in a while but these came on and have been every day, all day long for two months now. U was diagnosed with mitral valve 20 years ago but m cardiologist that I have now says I have a small leak in my valve and that it's not mitral valve. I've had complete blood panel done and all is normal except my iron is a lil low ( it's a 10). Could this be causing my palps? I don't know what they could be from but they are affecting my life n I can't take it much longer. Any suggestions? Also I have been on 25 mg of atenelol for about 20 years now n the Dr wants me to stop that n switch to 25 mg of metropolol. Do u think that's a good idea or will it help my palps?

    Hi I Sarah, you are braver than me. I get a few skipped beats every day, and I hate them. I think you mean Pvcs advaNced Pacs. ? I also have a valve that is leaky, my groupie valve. I h ave just started taking metoprolol myself. About a week and a half. I don't think it's doing much , just makes me tired! If you are really having thousands a day, you should possibly have to get an ablation. You need a good EP Dr. That many can weaken your heart. I hate the few I get. Scare me all the time. I hope you get some help soon. Keep hanging in. Many people have this problem, and some get very good results with different meds or ablation. Take care and let us know how you are doing. God bless you! Ileen

      Thank u. Ya this is very scary. What's more scary is no one can give me answers as to why these started so much outta nowhere. I just want something that will take these away or at least lessen them. All the Drs keep telling me it's nothing to worry about? Obviously it's because they are not dealing with them so they have no idea. Lol.
