In brief: Abnormal rhythm

Premature ventricular contractions occur due to an abnormal electrical rhythm in your heart.
Often these are benign but are annoying to the patient and cause anxiety. There can be serious reasons for them to occur. All of this will depend on your overall health, risk factors, medications, habits, tobacco, alcohol and drugs (even caffeine). You may need a monitor study and see pcp/cardiologist.

In brief: PVC's

Do you mean premature ventricular contractions? They are common and everyone has them. If they occur frequently or are bothersome, they can be easily treated.
If they occur in succession, they can be slanderous, but this is very rare.
