What Is A Full Cardiac Workup
I had a bunch of skipped beats in a row last night while layin in bed w no normal beat between. I've had a full cardiac workup last year. Negative.???
Probably OK: Most people have abnormal heart beats or skipped beats. Many are not even aware of it, because we don't normally feel our heart beat. These are probably just occasional premature beats which are not dangerous, but if your cardiac workup did not involve a Holter monitor (looks like a pager, and senses your heart for several days), it should. Speak with your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read more
I've had a full cardiac workup all normal. Is pvcs in both ventricle benign? Common? Is there other people that have pvcs in both ventricles?
Fairly common: Premature ventricular contractions (pvcs) are a common arrhythmia, often described as skipped beats. Pvcs may originate from different locations within either ventricle. Pvcs are usually benign & may be caused by structural damage, electrolyte imbalance, stimulants, or happen without cause. However, pvcs may also indicate serious heart problems, so you should see your doctor regularly to monitor. ...Read more

Heart artery spasm: A little known fact is that low estrogen can cause spasm of the arteries of the heart and it is relieved by estrogen treatment. Estrogen lowers the risk of heart disease in women and does not cause breast cancer. In the whi study (look it up) the women who took only estrogen and not synthetic Progesterone (provera) had a lower risk of breast cancer. With severe symptoms, estrogen can be considered. ...Read more

I agree with the other doctors who have suggested having this evaluated. ...Read more
