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.

Sounds benign: It appears you have had the appropriate tests. I suggest you limit your caffeine intact, and eat a balanced diet.

Had the tests doc says has pvcs how can I know they want hurt me seems like there getting worse I feel them and worry what do I do?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
