What are they doing for the anemia? Anemia can cause your heart to work harder but I have no idea if that causes PVC's and PAC's. With menopause, my palpitations stopped (though starting 14 years later I had afib occasionally). I wonder if a sudden hormonal change from the hysterectomy has triggered this increase in palpitations and if your body adjusts over time, things will get better.

I was always told there were "benign" and MD's did not understand how scary they can be. Have you worn a holter monitor? I assume so.

I hope this gets better for you. I found that tai chi helped me quite a bit. I am also careful not to eat after 5pm, since late eating was a trigger. Good luck!

Thanks so much for the reply. I’ve had several tests done through the years but I am following up with my cardiologist again this week. He still assures me I’m ok. They think the anemia is causing some of the issues. I’m taking iron supplements for it. They seem to think it will all settle down in time. I’m hoping that is true. It’s keeping me from living my life as I’m constantly scared.
