In brief: Yes
Premature ventricular contractions (pvcs) are extra beats from the large chambers (ventricles) of the heart, and often require no treatment.
Doctors will often check labs (electrolytes, hemoglobin, thyroid), an ultrasound of the heart (echocardiogram), and sometimes a stress test. If all normal, then it's a good sign.

PVCs are typically only treated if the patient is having like ventricular tachycardia and/or a readily identifiable structural defect. What symptoms are you having that you describe as getting worse? If they're not happening often enough to appear on monitors, then you're probably OK.

Should say "is having symptoms like v-tach".
