Has anyone experienced strong, sometimes painful thuds, or Ectopics when on the brink of sleep in a stressed day or just me?

Has anyone experienced when they are in bed say after a long day, after taking in salt, maybe alcohol(stimulants), they are stressed---PVCs? I had two like two big thuds, somewhat painful that shook me in bed and last night and winded me a bit. I breathed and coughed(vagal maneuver) and my heart was back to normal. I think PVCS can hurt a lot or be hard as I hear that it's due to how much blood builds up in the ventricles before the heart releases it. That little delay can cause more blood to build up than normal and so when released can cause a harder, more thud/thump type of beat that can be unsettling. Anyone experience this? Especially while in bed/trying to dose off? I was heart conscious yesterday. I notice when I don't think about it, they don't appear. (PVCS or Ectopics I mean)

I went through a period of about a week with ectopics happening when I was about to fall asleep a couple of years ago. They went as quickly as they came.

How do you know your ectopics are PVCs? They could be PACs.

I had a heart monitor on for 5 days which revealed ventricular ectopics and because no one got back to me I spoke to a private consultant dr Gupta of York cardiology who advised to take magnesium and not get stressed. (He does a lot of videos on YouTube).

I know him. Yes today I'm fine. My mind is calm. There's a mind, heart correlation.

He is very good and said that I should only take magnesium and keep calm. That is sometimes hard when my anxiety is high and then thud thud. I do mindfulness to try and relax which helps a great deal
