There are several: potential diagnoses that could explain sinus tachycardia (autonomic dysfunction, inappropriate sinus tachycardia, medication effects, anxiety, dehydration, etc.) We all have occasional PVCs. You live near a University health care facility so make an appointment with a cardiologist there for a second opinion.
