Since I started having anxiety, I started having pvcs and PAC's. Sum strong. Is this normal? I've NEVER had them b4. Done echo/stress/EKG/holter.

Anxiety. It is highly likely that your premature heart beats are a direct result of stress hormones released by the body when it is more anxious. Consider having your provider also check for thyroid or other metabolic conditions which can cause premature heart beats also.
Most likely. PVC's and APC's are frequently encounter. If your work up shows normal left ventricular function and no vascular or valvular abnormalities and there is no concentric Left ventricular hypertrophy these premature contractions don't mean too much.
Anxiety causing cadi. anxiety may cause palpitations,cardiac arrhythmia.young females may have mitral valve prolapse,thyroid disorder,hypertension.further evaluation EKG,holter monitoring,echocardiogram.It may be benign & require,stress testing.If vpc increase on exercise during stress testing should be treated with beta blockers.
Common in anxiety. With anxiety, adrenaline levels increase which causes extra beats in the heart muscle. It's harmless. One thing to rule out is thyroid hyperactivity, which can cause anxiety and extra heart beats. A simple blood test can detect this. If the extra heart beats are very bothersome, a low dose of a beta blocker medication can suppress them. But addressing the underlying anxiety is the most important.
Yes. anxiety does cause cardiac arrhythmias. By the same token, treatment will also help your cardiac issues, so proceed with therapy.

Probably not. Once premature atrial complexes (or atrial premature beats) are identified, further evaluation should be aimed at determining whether there is underlying structural heart disease. Your ECHO was apparently normal. Precipitants for APB's include alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and stress. If symptoms become persistent, there are some medical therapies or ablative techniques which can be used. Read more...

Panic and/or apnea. Anyone with a benign arrhythmia should be evaluated for sleep apnea, especially in the presence of anxiety treated with a respiratory depressant such as xanax (alprazolam). If your insurance allows, go directly to the sleep disorder specialist as most doctors are unaware of this connection in my experience. Read more...
Not CHD. Missing information is what symptom prompted this extensive work-up in the first place. Assuming palpitations was the reason, the first thing to do is to better define this. Keep a log. Take your pulse every time. Record how fast, how often, how long it lasts and what happens when it stops (sudden or slows down). The answers to these questions will provide more information to start than the tests. Read more...

Proven, or felt? Twitching of the intercostal muscles(muscles between the ribs)can feel like an irregular heart beat;if early beats (PACs or PVCs) were not seen on EKG or heart monitor,then a 24hour Holter monitor should record any that occur (mark down times)& look for signs of many beats in a row(SVT = supraventricular tachycardia). Decongestants,electrolytes,thyroid or lung disease can cause, sometimes all OK. Read more...
