I started having palpitations when I was just 22. When the symptoms first started occurring I was terrified. Getting medical attention wasn't easy either. It seemed like no one would take me seriously. After 2 years of living my life without knowing what was wrong with me I finally got a full cardio work up and to my surprise everything came out normal. To this day I still don't know what causes my palps but I am learning to live with them. I actually made a website just as a support group. Please visit me www.heart4pvc.webs.com View Thread
