About Me: Female, 47, St Louis, MO, member since Jan 2006
I'm 39 yrs old and have had PVC'S and PAC's for as long as I can remember. I can remember being a little kid wondering what the heck was wrong with my heart. I was diagnosed at 23 with high blood pressure 3 weeks after having my second child. I take medicine for that
[More] and it stays generally under control. But I have not been able to get a handle on these skipped beats. I hope this forum helps with that. Professionally, I am a real estate Broker and investor and a part time writer. I am also a wife and mother of 2 teenagers.
Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry you're going through the run right now. From 2007 - 2009 I was in bigeminy & trigeminy constantly per my ekg's and symptoms. My dr told me everything was normal so I just lived with it. I had no clue what was going on until 2009 when I was in a pvc 'storm' w/50,000 pvc's daily.
Maybe try a different BB or ask your dr for another type of med to help if the one he's prescribed isn't working.
The only thing I've found that works for me is Inderal, but I still get NSVT runs daily even after ablation.
