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?

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

What could cause frequent pvcs (benign) daily? Bupropion XL 150mg 3x daily, Prozac (fluoxetine) 20mg, or the combo? Also take 200mg modafinil, levothroid 88mcg.

Your levothroid, if not properly dosed could do it as well, ask your doctor for a blood test to make sure that dose is not too high for you. Being 58 years old, you could have heart problems unrelated to the medications. You should see a doctor to get this evaluated. ...Read more
