AFIB & PVC'S

Posted by @crashnam, Sun, Mar 25 10:26am

Anyone out there have both intermittent AFIB episodes with PVC's in between the episodes? And, do your PVC's sometimes get more alarming a few days or hours before going into AFIB? PVC's most times feel worse that the AFIB anyway. My AFIB episodes are consistently around the 200 BPM range lasting four to ten hours then it subsides. Recently, have had upper stomach palps which feel like little flutters and a little racing at the same time then subsides after 10 or 15 seconds. Yes, I do have a cardiologist (2). One of them is an ablationist who I have spoken to about possible ablation for the AFIB. Don't take much medication, just Metropolol (beta blocker) and 30 mg. of diltiazem to try and slow the heart down after going into AFIB. Have yet to take the diltiazem to see if it will help slow the heart rate down when in AFIB thinking it may cause more PVC's or erratic beating when heart is slowing down. Any suggestions?

Yes have an ablation, they are usually pretty successful, if it is bothering you.
