They only come on about lunch time and go away at about 5-6pm, none overnight. I normally take my meds at about 7am.
I'm curious. I have not had this to my knowledge, but have had NVT (non-sustained ventricular tachycardia). However, I have never felt it. I've had two instances in the last 4 years. I have no idea if you could see it on an EKG since I've never been hooked up when they happen. My pacemaker captures and stores the occurrences of non-normal behavior for the doctor to evaluate.
I'm curious what type of pacemaker and pacing program is being done in your case. I have a dual chamber PM that is programmed to monitor the top of the heart and fill in the signals on the bottom of the heart when the signals are not seen. Initially this was a small duty cycle (<2%) and now is > 99.9%)
I too take a med with HCT. I have not seen anything from my Google Doc that would indicate this is related to NVT.
