PVCs : Some people may have a few a day while others may have thousands. Many people have no awareness while others feel every one of them. Most often they are benign. If you are experiencing symptoms it may be worth checking with your doctor. Some non-invasive studies may put your mind at ease. If your symptoms are annoying enough, it may be time to try medication or to see an electrophysiologist.
