My doctor diagnosed me with benign pvcs. Are they dangerous in any way?

Doubtful: Almost every one of us has occasional pvcs. When monitored, these are common and rarely worrisome. Usually we check some basic labs and if indicated we check the heart's structure (echocardiogram), but for rare pvcs even these are often not necessary. ...Read more

I get some PVC'S that I can feel everyday. Doctor says they are benign. Is it true that staying hydrated can help reduce them??I hate them!!

See below: I sympathize with you because I also have PVCs and I feel them. In my case my burden in very low (less than 1% per day) with a higher burden (20-24 % or more) an ablation can be considered. Alternatively, antiarrhythmics can also be used. It is also possible to determine that your PVCs are benign based on the pattern on a 12 lead ECG. Hydration might help if you get the PVCs with exertion. ...Read more

I suffered from heart palpitations. Doctor said it is PVC and benign. Is it. Ekg and echo normal.

I suffered from heart palpitations. Doctor said it is PVC and benign. Is it. Ekg and echo normal.

Sounds benign: It appears you have had the appropriate tests. I suggest you limit your caffeine intact, and eat a balanced diet. If there's continued concern, you may need a cardiac stress test, which is an ekg during controlled exercise, or chemical injection. Premature ventricular contractions are "extra" beats that occur, and can be caused by caffeine, fatigue, stress, and chemical imbalance. Good luck. ...Read more

Can PVCS come and go?Would taking a multivitamin daily containing magnesium and potassium help?Ive been assured they are benign by doctor

Yes: PVCs do often "come and go". The extra potassium and magnesium may help, just watch out for diarrhea if you supplement too much magnesium. And in general PVCs are felt to be benign. Up to 80% of the healthy population has PVCs! ...Read more

Palpitations: Consider that some of your symptoms may also be PACs, extra beats from the upper chamber of the heart. If you notice these symptoms with meals, you should consider adjusting your diet - limit caffeine, alcohol, acidic foods, etc . and also reduce your portions. Check with your doctor that your current medication dose is OK and consider having a rhythm monitor that can be reviewed by a doctor. ...Read more
