PVCs every day

I am male 40 years. Other than (mild) hypertension - I take Triamterene  a quarterof 25mg   , I consider my self in good physical condition. I work out 5 times a week. I don't drink alcohol, I don't do drugs(never), I don't drink soda, I don't drink coffee. I don't smoke(never).

I first had my PVCs in Dec 2009. Only once  in 2009. then in 2010 I had 2 days of PVCs, in 2011 I had  4 days. in 2012 I had 12 days. staring in  2013 Feb, I have been having it every single day. During my 3 years ordeal I went to ER 3 times, echo twice, stress test twice, holter monitor 4 times. all clear. nothing.

my card gave me propanolol 10mg  - take it as needed, it doesn't help. I take magnesium supplement, I take potassium supplement, I eat banana, I eat spinach, drink juice, V8, beta blocker nothing nada zip...... BIG NOTHING still PVCs everyday. (bigeminy , trigeminy, etc) for total of 4-10 hrs

I never have pvcs in the morning . most of the time it starts right after lunch or right after dinner
anybody has the same experience? this drive me nuts. I am very angry at myself.

Don't be angry at yourself  These are tricky things to deal with.  I would say if you are working out intensely try and ease up a bit and see if that helps somewhat.  Sometimes if I overdo my exercising I can aggravate my pvcs and pacs.  So maybe just try not pushing as hard or alternate between going hard and going slow.  I do hope you can get a handle on them.

I have reduced the intensity of my workout a lot. Still the same.  Almost always , it starts with meal.  I have tried tums , nothing.

Considering it happens with meals there may be a stomach related issue.  Try cutting out carbohydrates as well as maybe take an antacid before the meal.  Maybe even get your stomach looked at.  As well maybe eat a bit of a smaller meal and see if that helps.

i had pcvs daily too. then they dissapeared and started occurs less frequently.

but sometimes my heart can race and its hard to stop it racing so fast.. that is another issue.

I know this is an older thread, but if you are getting notices of updates and comments to your question, here goes one:

I have had irregular heart beats (PVC's, PAC's) for years.  I am now 58 years old with mild hypertension and still have PVC's, etc.  Since 7th grade I've had SVT.  It was not diagnosed until many years later, as a young adult.  Had it corrected in 1997 with a catheter ablation.  It worked!  Great.  But the extra heart beats did not stop.  Anxiety, stress, lack of sleep (real sleep) all aggravate them.  But I had found the WORST instigator of the extra heart beats is this:  a full stomach, yes a large meal!  They invariably come on right after eating a large meal.  So try eating smaller meals more often.  If that is the case for you.

Hope this helped.
