Irregular Heartbeat During Sleep
I had 7 late beats on my holter monitor during sleep. Are late beats the same as a sinus pause or arrest? Are late beats dangerous?
Unclear: I'm not sure what you mean by "late beats". It's possible this refers sinus pauses. What matters is the possible causes, like medications, and how "late" the beats, as in two seconds versus more than 3 seconds. You should review these findings with the doctor who ordered your holter monitor. ...Read more

In the most extreme of circumstances, it's actually possible to be "scared to death" - this is the mechanism of so-called "voodoo death" in which a pre-scientific person is so scared of black magic directed against them, that they have a serious arrhythmia and die.

Pounding heartbeat very irritating. Cardiac exercise stress test no images and 48 hour holter monitor normal. Not anxiety can't fall asleep or woken?
Fast irregular heartbeat feels like jerking & I lost my sleep pattern. Will walking/jumping jacks & more sleep get my normal heart rate back?
Exercise>noSleep>yes: Fast irregular heart beats that feel like jerking are palpitations. They are usually caused by extra heart beats which can feel like a sudden "flip-flop" in the chest OR by a short run of very fast heart beats. Palpitations are not a sign of a heart problem unless you feel very faint or dizzy with them. Stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, caffeine can all cause them.
