Was this an Afib attack or PVCs? Anxiety triggered?
Question, I had 3 small 20 second episodes of where my heart started tobeat with a pause, hard beat then several extra beats in between the next beat or a pause and then the beat and then a few more extra beats. Is this a PVC or Ectopic?
I was feeling anxious, stressed, have alot on the go and also drank a very heavily caffeinated beverage from Starbucks. I breathed myself out of it .
I also noticed these attacks would occur when I would clear my chest/throat hard.
Like is that because it stimulates the vagus nerve which is already irritated because of my anxiety or stress? I’m taking much better care of myself now. Resting when I need to, sleeping better, practicing mindfulness, using essential oils, decompressing. I was just working a full time job before, growing 2 businesses , working out, always out meeting people, always go go go with min rest. Now I’m more balanced. However wonder what the episode today was. Like was this a PVC, Ecotpic attack due to stress, anxiety or Afib?
