Been having frequent PVCs since I was 3 weeks postpartum, I'm now 14 weeks pp. My PVCs go away when lying down, what could cause this?

Although I would: expect you to have additional symptoms, concern is raised for development of a post partum cardiomyopathy. Are you certain the irregular beats you are experiencing are PVCs? I think you should get evaluated for these complaints. See a health care professional for an EKG or monitor and perhaps an Echocardiogram. ...Read more

I get frequent pvcs, heart dr. Said heart is good.I'm bothered by them , they can be intense at times , like a punch or shock, is that normal?

I get frequent pvcs, heart dr. Said heart is good.I'm bothered by them , they can be intense at times , like a punch or shock, is that normal?

No: Pvcs are often a manifestation of anxiety, from excess production of adrenaline. Regardless, there is no physiological reason why you would feel them at all, much less as a punch or shock; it is just your heart contracting before the signal to contract arrives from the higher chambers. ...Read more

Frequent PVCs fully tested but worse when I'm stressed and washing my hair in the shower I can actually feel my pulse as irregular, why is that?

Frequent PVCs fully tested but worse when I'm stressed and washing my hair in the shower I can actually feel my pulse as irregular, why is that?

Probably unknown: By fully tested, I assume there has been an investigation for severity of arrhythmia (Holter monitor), and some screening done to rule out cardiac pathology (such as echocardiogram, and possible a stress test). If those tests were negative, then your PVCs are benign, and don't require treatment. It makes sense to decrease or eliminate caffeine. If your symptoms are causing you anxiety or limits ...Read more
