Electrical problem?: If a person gets PVC's when she is anxious, and her PVC's cause her even more anxiety, and her online Google searches are lengthy and end up scaring her even more, then this appears to be an electrical problem. Such a patient should consider disconnecting the electricity to her laptop so Google will no longer function, thus helping break her circular cycle of anxiety. Her primary doctor can help.
