My heart pauses and then has a hard beat several times a minute, sometimes feeling like a fish out of water. It happens more frequently when I change from side to side while laying down. What would cause this positional incident? Pressure from the rib cage or internal organs and is this common for PVC's. I know AF is dangerous but PVCs are not,is this right?
For what it's worth -- my experience is that I feel the PVCs more in certain positions, rather than that there are more PVCs in one position than another. For example, I feel PVCs most clearly when lying on my left side, and least when standing.
I too also notice that my body position affects PVC frequency-
lying on my left side and also bending over can bring them on, in fact, if I am having a run of them, just changing my position (eg
rolling over) can stop them.
