There is no simple single answer for the question. If you're bothered by the feeling should consult a dr. To see if the problem can be clarified. ...Read more
Anxiety causing pvc's? I didn't feel very anxious and then bam I got this massive skipped beat. I have had my heart checked. Its fine. Is it normal?
Need more info...: Answer is "sometimes." if you are otherwise in good or excellent health, and particularly since you are younger, the pvcs can actually be "brought out" by the psns that puts the brakes on the stress (sns) system. So it is not uncommon that when you get to rest / lie down / etc., that you notice all the odd-beats come out. Usually stress hormones overdrive these due to speed. ...Read more
PVC's and PAC's: Premature atrial and ventricular contractions or extra heartbeats may be considered normal in a heathly young adult.

Are beta bl only given for symptomatic relieve of pvcs during exercise? Can it harm my heart if I just live with pvcs?
Harm if too many PVC: Symptomatic PVCs may cause distressing symptoms, and many patients with this condition take beta blocker regularly, not just with exercise. They generally do not harm the heart unless > 20% of your beats are PVCs. In such cases, a weakened heart muscle may develop, which is why it is important to use beta blocker or other med to suppress or reduce the % of PVCs. ...Read more
I currently get about 20k PVCs a day but they are mainly triggered when my heart rate is low, basically while at rest. Why is that?
I have had pvcs for years, tonight my heart beat is very irregular and lower than usual, just a bad bout of pvcs or should I get checked?
Evaluation of PVC's: I am not sure how you know you have PVC's-I assume from a previous evaluation. If you are having irregular heart beats and your heart rate is lower than what you are use to, you should call your doctor/cardiologist now and make arrangements for an evaluation which will probably be both an ECG and Holter monitor. I think any change in your HR from what you are use to requires an urgent evaluation. ...Read more
I have had pvcs for years, I am always told they are benign. I sometimes have thousands a day. I also have tmj, could tmj cause heart palps?

Are multiple PVCs in a row dangerous - if all other cardiological workup normal? Sometimes it feels like my heart skips 3 or 4 beats in a row.
Arrhythmia so??: Sometimes you feel like like heart is skipping a beat but it really is not. The definitive test is called a Holter monitor where they attach ecg leads to you and to a small recording device, like a Sony Walkperson. You then go about your normal day while it is recording your EKG contintinuously for anywhere from 6 hrs to 30 days. You return they remove it and if you have a real arrhythmia it will ...Read more
I get pvcs sometimes. Cardiologist said hearts fine after tests. Rarely ill get a PVC when exercising, is this any different and should I worry?
Normal: One of the characteristics of benign pvcs is that they are suppressed or overdriven by exercise (as opposed to ischemic pvcs which are worse with exercise). Yours sound benign and that seems to correlate with your test results. ...Read more
Since PVCs may indicate slight risk of developing heart disease, what frequency of PVCs puts one in this category? 10-20 per day? Many more?

It would have to be a LOT of PVC's to matter BUT
many in a row (7 or more) OR many different shapes of PVC's are signs of something serious. ...Read more
I've been suffering with PVC's etc on and of for a few years. However I have a structurally normal heart, which is good, can I still go into V-TACH?
Possible but unlikel: It is very unlikely for someone with a structurally normal heart to have VT. Anything is possible, so if you have spells of rapid heart beat and feel like you could pass out, you should have further testing. But in general, it's not something that is considered to be a risk. ...Read more
Get pvcs/pacs but today felt heart pause for a beat and continue regularly 4 times/min. Norm echo waiting On 2wk holtor results. But never felt that?
How can I be not so obsessed by my heart rate? There is nothing wrong with my heart (checked), but sometimes I get these pvc's and they make me anxious
PVC: Anxiety, stress, strenuous exercise, fear, anger and social anxiety cause palpitations. It is natural. You are doing behavior therapy, keep it up. You may want to check thyroid function. High thyroid can cause palpitations. Your ekg is normal so there is no congenital WPW syndrome. Also no coffee, alcohol or social drugs.. Good luck. ...Read more
Drs say my heart's heathly I get pvc& pacs daily for 20years, 30 now. They can be forceful at times, worried they might turn dangerous in the future?
PVCs run rampant at times, & then I can go months/years with 0-5 each day-I've proven on EKGs that I can "feel" each & every one. "CAN" my heart be ok?
Most likely: In general PVC's are not harmful but they can also be an indicator of a weakened heart muscle, electrolyte imbalance or coronary artery disease. If you are having around 20% of all beats PVC's you can develop a cardiomyopathy. Check with your health care provider for a thorough cardiac work up. Periodic Echo, EKG and stress is appropriate and it appears you are getting these. ...Read more

On and on, until: Chronic Anxiety has a lot of staying power. It hangs on, even discovers new ways to bother you until you learn ways to avoid, reduce and manage it.
