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

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

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!!

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

I've had pvcs as many as 5 times per minute for 3 days straight, but my doctor is not concerned. Is this normal?

I've had pvcs as many as 5 times per minute for 3 days straight, but my doctor is not concerned. Is this normal?

Depends-: Pvc's, in and of themselves, are not dangerous if they are solitary (not a group in a row, known as ventricular tachycardia), and if the heart function is normal. This is crucial, because pvc's with normal heart function are usually benign, however pvc's with abnormal heart function can be something more serious. Speak with your doctor about it before taking any advice on the internet. ...Read more

Try Relaxation: Your worry itself might trigger more PVCs as it causes the release of catecholamines that can "tickle" the heart. Be sure you are following your doctor's treatment plan, e.g. medications, and consider a variety of relaxation techniques. You might do yoga, or learn meditation, just take a walk in a scenic park or read a book to a young person. Control your worry & lower the rate of your PVCs! ...Read more

Doc says I have pvcs feels like heart flutters and I feel it in my thoart have anixty. Could that cause them?

Yes: Your anxiety may also be worsened by the "flutters" you feel with palpitations. Talk with your doctor about the safety of adjusting the dose of your Atenolol. Be careful about your diet and don't smoke. Also, be sure to have follow-up for your anxiety as there may be additional treatments to consider. ...Read more

Doc says I have pvcs my pulse use to be in 90s til the beta blocker now it's good I worry a lot do I need to worry about tech scared?

Depends: If you are symptomatic from your PVC's then the beta blocker will help. If that does not help, then you have other options such as a PVC ablation. However, if you are asymptomatic from your PVC's you shouldn't worry to much. ...Read more
