What would cause PVCs only when laying on my stomach? Or if I bend over to grab something? It seems certain positions make them worse.

Pvcs: Pvcs in general are fairly benign unless they are effecting heart function. They are extra firing from the bottom of your heart. It would be interesting to monitor you to see if the beats you are feeling are actually Pvcs provoked on different positions and to see what they look like because some times they can be easily suppressed ...Read more

Are pvcs dangerous? I have them and they seem worse since I got sick with a stomach virus two days ago. Can sickness make them worse?

Pvc's: Not all premature ventricular complexes are serious, but it takes a cardiac auscultation, 24 hour Holter monitor and an echocardiogram, and an ekg to be sure. PVC's are made more frequent by caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, tobacco and stress, over active thyroid or other stimulants. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

NotmallyI get only few pvc a day. But after stomach bug and vommiting a lot I had 1 pvc every few to five min all day. Next day they eased out, norm?

PVCs and hydration: Sometimes PVCs can come on more when one is dehydrated, febrile or caffeinated. It sounds like there was a good explanation. I am assuming you had a Holter and bloodwork in the past regarding this. Most of the times, an occasional PVC is benign. ...Read more

What are the normal range of pvcs?

What are the normal range of pvcs?

Depends: Pvcs are premature ventricular contractions. These can occur in healthy hearts or diseased hearts. A 12 lead electrocardiogram can be used to evaluate the location of pvcs. Those coming from higher up in the ventricle (or outflow tract) are usually benign (although not always). Those coming from bottom of heart are usually worrisome. These can range from very infrequent to a sequential run. ...Read more

Do pvcs usually involve both ventricules?

Are pvcs triggered by certain food or body action?

Are pvcs triggered by certain food or body action?

Usually not: Pvcs are a normal variant of the inherent electrical properties of heart muscle cells. I have seen many patients obsessively look for correlation with foods or activities, rarely finding any. Only rarely does caffeine trigger this activity, and even less often might certain sugary foods, or very cold beverages, do it. Exertional activity usually suppresses pvcs, if the heart is otherwise healthy. ...Read more

I'm experiencing pvcs about 10 times or more a day. What should I do?

Full evaluation: You need a full evaluation to look for treatable causes and to asses the risk, if any. Blood sample for chemistry, magnesium, echocardiogram, stress test, & chest x-ray at a minimum. Avoid caffeine, excess alcohol, and stimulants. Get plenty of rest. Avoid stress, if possible. If you still have troublesome symptoms, there are a variety of medicines that are effective. ...Read more

It depends: Usually a couple of pvc's may be very difficult for people to feel and most people would never know try had them unless they were on a heart monitor. In certain people the pvc's are part of severe heart rhythm disorder and thus the person begins to feel chest pain or palpitations. Best idea is to be properly worked up by the cardiologist. ...Read more

If you do have symptoms or you become very concerned about them, have a cardiologist check your heart out. There are some very simple meds that can help. ...Read more

I have bad aniexty, why do pvcs come and go freely. One minute there, there next they are gone?

Common: PVCs can be aggravated by anything that induces adrenaline, including stressful moments. Ingested agents can also provoke these skipping salvos. Caffeine laden drinks are one good, broad example. There is a random component to these extra or skipping beats that is hard to come to grips with. The trick is to come to know them then to eliminate them mentally from your mind. ...Read more

If pvcs are not harmful why are they so scary?! my day is ruined when I have a strong bout or frequent ones. Most terrifying feeling!

PVCs: Pvcs can be scary because they put you in a situation when you're out of control. You seem helpless and disoriented as to what to do to control your heart rate. You need a work up done. Heart monitoring to start with, echocardiogram. All of that can be done after a referral to cardiologist. ...Read more
