Ectopy: It is somewhat reassuring that you have been evaluated by a cardiologist. However your atrial and ventricular ectopic appears quite bothersome and many cardiologists would treat you on this basis. Since you're symptomatic during exercise I recommend a treadmill stress test if you haven't had one. You may want a 2nd opinion from a cardiologist who is an electrophysiologist
