I also don't understand what the difference is between premature atrial contractions and premature ventricular contractions, is one worse than the other or are they the same?

Aug 17, 2018 · Premature atrial contractions in Heart & Blood Health

I was now just recently told I have Premature Atrial Contractions, or P.A.C, after being on a holter monitor for 48 hrs. I was told this after my higher then normal calcium score, and was told p.a.c. is benign., but im still worried. I was put on monitor after I felt my heart pounding hard in my left neck area. Im wondering if anyone has any helpful info on this? Im really worried acutally, even cancelled my colonoscopy due to the laxative saying it could cause irregular heartbeat. it seems I can feel my heart skip beats at times or speed up! very scary to me. Im wondering if anyone else has this? I am 58 yrs old and am on lovastatin for high cholesterol thanks

Thank you everyone for all the great advice and support! I have not started the Lipitor yet, (due to anxiety over it) but feel more comfortable now with all of your advice, I'm going to take a lower dose at first along with the baby aspirin to see how I tolerate it I'm so grateful I joined this discussion group you have all been so helpful I wish you all the best and will keep you posted! Also read something about "repatha"? Is anyone familiar with it?

I just had a high calcium score of 224, and my LDL is high, heart disease is in my family, but I'm concerned about taking the Lipitor my Dr wants me to take I've heard so many side effects of the statins. I'm on low dose aspirin now to any suggestions would be greatly appreciated very nervous about all this
