I am a healthy 39 year old mom of 1. 3 years ago I gave birth and ever since then I have been plagued with frequent PVC's. Recently it is worse, symptomatic bigeminy. Sometimes it goes on for days with symptoms of shortness of breath, anxiousness, pain occuring very focaly in same part of my chest. All the tests have been done and they say my heart is fine. I feel there may be a link to female hormones. I have some friends post partum whom this occurs with them too. Our cardiologists feel there isn't much they can do and have prescribed, beta blockers, benzos and anti anxiety meds. This is not working well. I've tried alternative methods too. Does anyone have any suggestions? Has there been research on young healthy women with postnatal hormonal influences?
Hello there...i too have been having problems with pvcs, svt and tachycardia since the birth of my second child two years ago...the problems started a month after i gave birth...and still going...i just stopped breastfeeding and my heart woes flaired up twice as bad....especially around my period....gosh i experienced sooo many pvcs...like every 5 or 6 beats until my period ended....my hormones are not balanced...so i'm also looking for ways to get that balance back in my body
I also suffer with pvc's,pac's,svt...usually have bigeminy every day for hours . I have no idea what causes it for me. I have no children but my Vit-D is low so I'm taking extra Vit-D I also take a multi vitamin every day.
I'm also on Ativan from the anxiety they cause. I'm nautious alot and short of breath also. I try to eat right and have vegies and fruit every day and I don't drink any alcohol or caffeine. I can't take Beta Blockers I'm allergic to them they almost killed me made my blood pressure and pulse go way too low.
I have no idea what causes these things but I try so hard to just accept this. I know God will take this away from me in his timing.
