I have a problem which seems to becoming more and more frequent. My heart will stop beating and the only reason I know this is because of the way it "pounds" furiously when it starts back up again as I try and catch my breath. I tried to see if there was some sort of pattern to it, certain foods I ate might have been triggering it, medications I was taking, etc. It didn't matter. I thought maybe my salt consumption may have been a contributing factor (used to be a huge saltaholic here), but even cutting way back on it, didn't stop these episodes. I can be fine for a month or up to six weeks, and then they just hit several times, even waking me up out of a sound sleep. My doctor seems unconcerned, just indicating they were PVCs. I've had these for years, but they seem to be becoming more intense, lasting longer in duration and just a touch painful. Anyone else suffer from this malady or have any good recommendations? I'm a 45 year old woman, good health, taking no medications.
