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

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
My daughter is 9 and recently diagnosed with arrhythmia and pvc's. When she is lying down I can see the beats in her stomach. Is that normal?
Abdominal pulsations: I don't know how thin your daughter is, but it is very common for children with thin frames to be able to see an abdominal pulsation when they are lying down. However, since your daughter has additional cardiac concerns, I would consult with her specialist to make sure ...Read more
