Does your heart feel like it is skipping or stopping? It could be from PAC’s.
PAC’s are known as many things including PACS, premature atrial contractions or premature atrial complexes.
The electrical system of the heart is what we monitor on a EKG. It is the electricity generated by the body to cause the heart muscle to squeeze. There should be a steady rhythm to the electricity. But every so often, an early electrical impulse can jump in. Most of the time, we don’t feel the early impulse. Sometimes we do. Most people are not bothered by it. Others, the early beats are ruining their life.
The good news is that this condition is not dangerous. It does not signify a need a for a stress test or invasive procedure. Don’t fall for the money-grab from a typical cardiologist.
Patients complain of heart stopping or skipping. Sometimes PAC’s are described as a thump or thud in their chest. Lightheadedness is very rare. Syncope (fainting) should point to another diagnosis.
Testing starts with a physical exam and EKG. Sometimes, 24 hour or 2-week monitors are necessary to assist in the diagnosis.
Doctors are quick to prescribe pharmaceuticals for this condition. Typical drugs include the beta-blocker class or calcium channel blockers. They are not effective and only lead to side effects. Stress testing is not necessary and usually, neither is an echocardiogram. Don’t waste your time or money.
There is a better way.
