Thalassemia Cause Pvcs
Probably not: Alpha thalassemia probably doesn't cause pvc's (premature ventricular beats, a type of extra heartbeat). However, some thalassemia patients have magnesium deficiency, which can make pvc's more likely to occur. Patients who get transfusions off and on may be drinking lots of coffee, using caffeine or phenols in coffee to decrease iron absorption, to hold off iron overload. Caffeine can cause pvc's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am low in all haemoglobin, RBC, PVC, MCV, MCH, MCHC but a high RDW. My iron is only 1.6 umol/L. Is it possible I have thalassemia?
This is serious: If your physician has not already had a serious talk with you about what is probably iron deficiency anemia, get with a physician who's a better communicator. You haven't shared the exact numbers, but the smart money is on iron deficiency, with thal and a few others needing to be ruled out. Even if you have heavy periods / recent pregnancy, you need a competent workup. Demand good care. ...Read more

Multiple foci: Multiform pvcs are premature ventricular contractions originating from different parts of the ventricle. Each point-of-origin will have a unique form on an ekg. This can be dangerous if it causes tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. If this is you, you should be under the care of a cardiologist. ...Read more
PVC couplets: The most common causes can be narrowed down based on a normal or abnormal heart structure (should be reported on your echocardiogram). The heart pump is interrupted for a few seconds with a couplet causing a transient lack of blood flow & bad feeling. See your cardiologist & consider holter, stress, or EKG testing.

What would cause the left side of my face to be constantly swollen. Its very noticeable and never goes away? I have a history of pvcs.
ENT evaluation: I doubt that pvc's are to blame for your swelling. I could be related to underlying sinus congestion. I would start with an ENT physician for an evaluation. The problem would be less likely due to your heart or blockages in the veins that drain your face as you would be having much more severe symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
