Are pvcs as scary as they might feel dangerous considering you have no underlying heart disease and a normal eko ? Been gettin quite a few.

In brief: Not really

Sometimes stress, electrolyte abnormalities, lack of sleep can cause frequent pvcs.
They are not uncommon in otherwise healthy subjects but most people do not feel them.

In brief: Not dangerous

No pvcs aren't dangerous without heart disease.
Everybody has some. Just scary whether felt as skips or extra beats. Skips are from an unfelt extra beat followed after a short delay by the next normal beat , which is more forceful and also exagerrated by a sense of emptiness in the noticeable delay.
