Go Pop Those PVCs !!: Funny, a doc will often say"It's nothing"or"Don't worry it's not dangerous but you are still walking around feeling like a popcorn popper.Great.Go back and tell the guy that all these extra beats are driving you crazy and actually making it all worse.Ask what can be done and don't settle for Valium! It's standard not to treat them unless they cause a problem,and it sounds like you've got a problem

You can request treatment but understand that 100 PVCs are not dangerous and the treatment (side effects) are sometimes worse than the index symptom. Relaxation, stress reduction, reassurance from your doctor (given) and trying to ignore them might serve you better than medication.
