Would Thyroid Cause Arrhythmia Pvc
Not known to, but...: Rare, idiosyncratic reactions to any med can occur. Likely unrelated, look elsewhere first. ...Read more
Arrhythmia is also known as Abnormal heart rhythms. An arrhythmia is any type of irregular heart beat. It might be a simple skip of the heart beat, or a transient pause which is usually benign. However, there are also more serious types of arrhythmias when the heart races or goes too slowly. The most serious types of arrhythmias are when the ventricle or lower chamber of the heart beats too fast. This can lead to fainting ...Read more
Yes: Whether the very common "sinus arrhythmia" really causes pac's / pvc's is something you'll want to discuss with your physician but if he/she isn't concerned, I'm not either. More than 5 per minute, or in runs, is worrisome. You may try limiting coffee intake, or just getting comfortable with hearts doing flip-flops from time to time. Glad you're taking a proactive approach. ...Read more
What kind of arrhythmia would cause your heart to flutter, dizzy, like no beats in between and scared. It felt like a lot if pvcs in a row.
Several....: There are several arrhythmias that can cause these symptoms including atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, PVCs that can occur as "runs" where there are several in a row. Ventricular arrhythmias, besides PVCs, would likely cause more symptoms, like passing out. The best way to figure out what is wrong is to have a Holter monitor placed for at least a few days so see your doctor ASAP or go to ER! ...Read more
Have sinus tachycardia/pvcs/sinus arrhythmia/palpitations. 23 years old. Normal ecg/echo/blood tests. What are my chances for cardiac arrest?
Understand the terms: At 25, possibility of cardiac arrest is remote even with family history. SINUS TACHYCARDIA is a rapid, otherwise normal beat. SINUS ARRYTHMIA refers to the normal variation in pulse rate with the breathing cycle seen in young athletes. PVCs are extra beats generated in lower chamber for many reasons, rarely serious. PALPITATIONs are literally the awareness of your heartbeat caused by any of these. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My friend has arrhythmia (PVC) and has smoked cocaine - I have been advised in the past not to give him metoprolol because this can make it worse. Is this the generally accepted medical view?
PVCs are Arrhythmia: The likely answer is that your doctors are attempting to keep down the number of pvcs you're having. The level of success with such strategies varies from person to person. Our understanding of pvcs continues to evolve, but in very high numbers, they can lead to heart dysfunction and require specific interventions. An electrophysiologist may be able to "ablate" the pvcs and get you off meds. ...Read more
Sudden death from arrhythmia a risk to healthy individuals as well as those w/CAD and/or prior MIs? Correlation between PVCs & sudden death risk?
PVCs: PVCs signal risk in those with known coronary artery and or heart muscle disease. Otherwise normal patients who happen to have PVCs do not seem to have an increased risk of an event signalled by the PVCs. ...Read more
Do all palpitations show up on a ekg? Besides pvcs and pacs are normal palpitations an arrhythmia?
Bumps In The Night: An EKG takes only one minute so you're "lucky" (I guess) to find any. If the doctor is really concerned he'll put you on a constant monitor (that you carry around with you) for from 2 to 14 or so days.He'll also ask you to keep a record of any symptoms you feel during that time. Ordinarily it's not worrisome to have a few PVCs or PACs a day unless you have bad symptoms or they fit certain patterns ...Read more
Could I die from arrhythmia? Anterior mitral valve sag trivial MR holter 19 pac (4 couplets) 5 pvc, were kinda few that day. Doctors not worried tho?
A premature ventricular contraction is an extra beat from the bottom of the heart. Any cell in the heart can cause a heart beat but most usually stay quiet and defer to the main electrical system. Occasionally a single cell can fire off on its own causing an extra, or what many people refer to as a "skipped" beat, much ...Read more
