I have had these since 2009, the first time it happened I felt my heart throughout my whole body, I called a cardiologist he did all the tests bloodwork, and say my Potassium in my body was very low, so he put me on Potassium and Metoporal .25 MG. ....I then went for a 2nd opinion and had the same tests done, and it seemed like this doctor could care less....Now I am back in NY taking care of my Dad and I get these damn things all the time, Now I get so stressed over these, I cannot even get in my car and drive by myself, I feel like I am going to have a panic attack. I went to a regular MD he gave me Xanax but I really do not like taking them all the time, I take one when I feel panicky or these PVC's...I have notice lately I get PVC's more often, and I do not like them one bit, I feel them pounding inside of me It is not fun at all.
Ventricular Premature Beats or Premature Ventricular Contractions, when symptomatic, can be very uncomfortable for some people. It sounds like you are quite symptomatic. The first thing to do is to determine whether your symptoms are directly attributable to the ventricular premature beats. Thiswould require wearing a simple, small monitor for a few days and recording when you have symptoms. Most doctors can prescribe such a monitory for you (typically referred to as a Holter monitor). If you're unhappy with your doctors, you might want to see an electrophysiologist. An electrophysiologist is a cardiologist who specializes in rhythm disorders. If your symptoms are indeed attributable to ventricular premature beats, there are several treatment options, including medications or a simple procedure.
