PVC's relationship to SVT

I'am wondering if anyone else has felt this. In my life (over 50 years) I have only had short runs of SVT and only 2 or 3 long episodes that lasted about 10 minutes. What I notice now, is when my heart rate starts to get faster and stronger the PVC's kick in. Are PVC's the hearts way of slowing itself down?

I had an ablation for my SVT, but I never experienced PVC while in SVT, I had a very strong fast heart rate.  I always felt a wierdness just before the fast beat would start...that could be simular to a PVC.  Unforunately, my SVT would stop...I would have to go the ER (IV with adenosine) was the only thing that would stop my episode.  By the way, I'm 52 and my first SVT episode was at 49.  

I have had PVC's since my 20's but they aren't bad and I don't get them often.

Good Luck!
