There are many: potential causes of PVCs irrespective of having WPW. Often caffeine, nicotine, alcohol or stress are causes. Obesity and obstructive sleep apnea can also cause ventricular irritability. Discuss this concern with your health care provider who has your entire health history available. Lots of treatments are available if necessary if making good life style choices doesn't resolve the problem.
