J’s story of living with ectopic heart beats

I’ve had ectopics for 6 years. I also have SVT once-twice a year, but it does not bother me and my cardiologist says it is not dangerous.

My ectopics cause a severe anxiety and agoraphobia. I try not to give up, but it’s bigger than me. They go away when I work, when I do sports (I ride a horse everyday) but after that I just get nervous and start to panic. Usually I have 0-10 ectopics a day, but when a panic attack comes, there can be a number of them, one by one, even bigeminy.

Every year I have a Holter monitor and echocardiography and the results are normal. When I have a bad day, I watch Dr Sanjay Gupta videos on YT and it gets better 🙂 I am looking forward to living like I used to… 🙁

    Hi there,

    I’m going to echo the thoughts of a multitude of people when they say that they feel better about their ectopics when they see your videos. It’s amazing how it’s true.

    We are all blessed by God to have found you through whichever channel we reached you. Thank you for your kindness and care, and for really understanding how we feel when the ectopics go haywire. I guess when we feel understood is when we start feeling better. It makes sense.

    Thank you for your selfless kindness. May God bless you with the best of health, happiness and prosperity.

    Ectopic beats won’t kill you, but anxiety and stress will…
