Detail:

After a dinner at which I drank three glasses of wine and a cup of coffee, I began to feel an unsteady heartbeat. When I took my pulse it seemed that I had some extra beats, and sometimes it felt as though I was missing beats. This has continued to the present with varying degrees of intensity.

Detail:

I went in for a treadmill test with the radioactive injection. I went for 12 minutes on the treadmill and got my heart rate to 173. The PVCs became less frequent when I got the heart rate up, but when I was finished and sat down I had a flurry of them, about one every two beats.
