Never had PACs until A Fib episodes got closer

Here is one for you.  It’s a mystery to me.  I have had PVCs for years.  Confirmed on Holter monitors.  They don’t bother me.  

I had my first a fib episode in 2013 and was cardioverted back to NSR and was fine until I threw a Pulmonary Embolism in April of this year.  A Fib was what made me go to the hospital and then they found the clot.  Anyway, several months after that, I had another episode, and then started getting PACs for the first time ever.  My Kardia picked them up and so does my ILR.  

I got my ablation in November 2018, and the. They really picked up as expected.  We all know this happens.  

Now I have two or three to five a day.  Not so bad. However, each one feels like I’m about to go into AF.  I know people are familiar with this fear too.  

Why on Earth, would I have never had a PAC before either a completely normal heart?  Did the worsening AF tiger the little buggers before thr ablation? I know they are normal after ablation.  So weird and I can’t figure it out. Does it mean something changed in my heart? LA enlargement?
