Its great to read all of the similiar problems people are having. I feel very alone with my symptoms. I have had A-Fib for about 7 year now. I am a 36 year old male, very physically fit, and am on Atenolol to keep it in check. I havn't had an episode since 2003. This past january I had a bout of pericarditis after receiving a Hep A vaccine. It was a very severe allergic reaction due to the vaccination. To make a long story short, I have not been right ever since. I now have PVC's all the time and am full of anxiety and misery because of them. I would have occasional skipped beats every now and then before the pericarditis but now they are out of control. I have seen several cardiologists and EP Doctor's with little help from any of them. They were worse in the spring and am hoping that they subside as my body fully recovers from the pericarditis. I am hoping I have no permanent damage from the inflamation (inflammation) that occurs from the pericarditis. Does anyone have any information or knowledge on this issue. I was living with the A-Fib and as long as I didn't do anything stupid like drink, or have caffeine I would be good and would not go into it. Since this january I have gone into A-Fib twice and have these horrible pvc's. Any help would be very greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.
