PVCs at age 27!

Ok, so this is not fun. I am a New RN. Just graduated in May 2008. The day after I took my NCLEX board exam I landed in the ER throwing up to 11 PVCs a minute. Now I am a critical care nurse, but a new one at that. My EKG from my trip to the ER was otherwise unremarkable, and I had a fellow intern run a 12 lead on me last week, this one was normal sinus rhythm and no PVCs... however, I still feel the bastards at random times. I have cut out caffine, I rarely ever drink. I am in the process of trying to quit smoking (going well, I might add!) and I am trying to loose the weight that appeared in nursing school. WHY AM I STILL HAVING THESE PVCs? Now, I have done some research that has led me to question hormones as a role in this. I have severe Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, and I was taking Clomid for the last 6 months at varying dosages...all the way up too 250 mg/day for 5 days. I am off the hormones for now, but plan on attemting to get pregnant again after the weight comes off. COULD THE HORMONE USE AND NOW DISUSE BE PLAYING A ROLE? OR COULD THE HORMONE SWINGS FROM MY POLY CYSTIC OVARIES BE TO BLAME? There seems to be no rhyme or reason to these things, but the freak me out. I did just finish my ACLS certs, so cardiac issues are on the brain. I know the odds are that these are benign PVCs, but I can't help but be afraid that I will end up a patient in one of my own telemetry beds. CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS THAT I MIGHT NOT BE SEEING?

Anything is helpful!
Paige.
