Hi, the abdominal discomfort may not be related to PVCs. And PVCs usually do not need any therapy unless the PVCs are associated with underlying heart disease and periods of ventricular tachycardia. Your symptoms could be due to gallbladder or liver disorders. The other causes could be gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and GERD. Disorders of the colon could also cause pain. Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
