So after being diagnosed with new onset aFib in January 2018 and having an electro cardioversion, I am taking Pradaxa and having what I assume are palpitations, PACS or PVCS with an elevated heart rate for a few minutes afterwards. These usually occur on my daily bike rides.
How do I know if these are PACS, PVCS or just harmless palpitations? My heart rate can go up to 170-180 and take several minutes to come down after I stop to rest. While it is not painful, I can definitely feel something is happening in my chest and brings anxiety.
Can anyone describe what it feels like to have a PAC or PVC? Do they usually produce an elevated heart rate?
I am currently wearing a 30 day monitor to determine what is going on but would appreciate feedback from any who have experienced these.
