24hr holter showed many skipped beats and early/xtra beats.What are these called? I feel heart pause,then sudden hard fast beat, very irreg n repeats

Premature beats: They are simply called "premature beats" as they occur earlier than expected. They originate either from the upper chamber (atrium) and termed premature atrial beats PAC or from the lower chamber(ventricle) called premature ventricular beats (PVC) . In both cases following the premature beats ,there is a pause and the first beat usually feels strong or hard. Check with MD They are often benign ...Read more

Diagnosed with Bells Palsy 6/18/17right side. Noticed twitching over left eye 6/30/17 does it mean I'm getting bilateral palsy. Are twitches normal?

Diagnosed with Bells Palsy 6/18/17right side. Noticed twitching over left eye 6/30/17 does it mean I'm getting bilateral palsy. Are twitches normal?

Not likely: It is highly unlikely that you would develop bilateral Bell's palsy. I assume that you are using refresh pm or some other petroleum based ointment in the right eye several times daily and before bed to protect your cornea. If you do develop it in your left eye, use the ointment there, too and call your doctor. Best wishes ...Read more

Dr cant diagnose periodic paralysis, it hit for 2-3 mins max, I never fall, when tired/during season change, hand moves induced Hypok/hyperk?

Please give details: I don't understand exactly what you mean by "can't" diagnose periodic paralysis. Is this doctor a neurologist? There could be other factors present making the diagnosis more challenging such as HYPERthyroidism, seizure disorders, and periodic paralytic types with NORMAL levels of potassium.

Skipped beats cause: The kind of Sx u describe.Tho they can b annoying if there is no evidence of any heart disease,they are not serious.Am not sure from ur description how many are ventricular or atrial.

Cold shoulder pain, sleep paralysis, myoclonus, tmjd, hypoglycemia, voice hoarseness, numbness in neck, paresthesia in face (electrical) and body?

Ent says vestibular neuritis- hearing great via hearing test, mild nystugmutus to the left.But when i close my eyes they twitch (eye lids). Vertigo worse in am.Can twitch b from neuritis? No MRI done

Ent says vestibular neuritis- hearing great via hearing test, mild nystugmutus to the left.But when i close my eyes they twitch (eye lids). Vertigo worse in am.Can twitch b from neuritis? No MRI done

I do MRIs: Generally symptoms related to the posterior fossa of the brain can be clinically diagnosed but they cannot be certain there is no stroke or tumor present. My mother had the diagnosis of recurrent vestibular neuritis (or labyrinthitis). In mris done a few years later she had multiple pontine strokes. Also the doctor should order your MRI with and without contrast. ...Read more

Depends on symptoms: Your findings may be considered normal. It depends whether you felt the symptoms prompting the holter placement, during the time that you wore the holter. Either way, a longer-term rhythm recording may be necessary. Call 911 if you develop shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, passing out, or a sudden onset rapid heart rhythm that doesn't resolve after 30 seconds, or recurs. ...Read more
