Hi! Can exercise cause heart flutters (PVCs)? I've had echo, EKGs, Holter, event, but no stress test. Cardio cleared me. What is this? Thx

In brief: PVCs

PVCs can occur at any time.
They do not necessarily occur due to exercise. They are more interesting when they occur very very frequently, especially after someone has had a heart attack. Your normal testing indicates you are in good shape! http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/premature-ventricular-contractions/basics/definition/con-20030205
