PVCs during exercise

I was under the impression that PVCs were a generally benign occurrence, In my case, I generally get them (or PACs, I'm not sure which) during exercise, or any activity where my heart rate increases (sometimes getting up out of a chair and walking to another room in my house will do it).

I came across this article about exercise-induced PVCs (http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/109/20/2374) and skimming through the abstract and those of the linked articles got me worried. None of them point to a MAJOR increased risk, but this still contradicts what I've heard in the past. Anyone have any thoughts?

PACs and PVCs are something that almost everyone has.  I can see that where I volunteer in a hospital.  In the CVCU I sit next to the person who monitors the heart rates of the 40 patients, and almost everyone shows PACs and PVCs.  That being said, after experiencing them myself for many years, I experienced a new heart beat, reported it and now have a pacemaker.  In my case, damage from heart attacks led to a dangerous situation.  
I'm not a health professional, but as long as you are feeling ok, don't notice any changes like breathlessness, chest pain, etc., you probably are OK.  If you notice changes, thats when it is time to contact your doctor.
Medhelp has a board directed to your question:  http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Heart-Rhythm/show/92.  Best wishes.
