Just diagnosed PAC & PVC/Exercise

Hello!

New to the forum and just needed to hear from someone who experiences PAC's & PVC's.  

I have just started a new beta blocker which seems to be helping.  I am concerned about exercising.  Should I be?
I want to do a cardio workout to keep my heart strong but am a little afraid.  The electro. cardiologist is telling me  they do nothing surgically unless the abnormal rythyms become consistant throughout the day.

Also, is there anyone out there with these issues that has a hard time in the summer heat?  I have very little tolerance for hot humid weather.

Thanks!

I get pvcs and pacs.  I work out 6 days a week with weights and I run 4 miles four times a week.  If your doctor says it is okay then don't worry.  I know that is hard.  I ask my doctor all the time.  He tells me to even go sky diving if I want.  Ha!   Fat chance.
I am on atenolol which is also a beta blocker.  It seems to help me as well.

Heat and extreme cold will start my pvcs acting up.  Don't know why.  Again when I mentioned it to my doctor he just says "a lot of people tell me that".
Good luck.

I too am on atenolol for tachy, pac's and pvc's. I live in Southeast Texas and it gets SUPER hot. I have a terrible time in the heat. It's been very cold here this week (those that get snow don't laugh, but upper 20's and lower 30's is very cold for us, and it is so damp here), and my PVC's just settled down this morning. They had been acting up since Monday. That's the longest I've noticed them being so constant. Like Jodie said, as long as the doctor ok'd the exercise, you're good to go.
