Hey I am a 27 year old male. 6 foot 225 lbs. I have had PVC's for years now. I have had all the tests: ekg, echo, stress, and all came back normal. I tried beta blockers but they had no effect. Anyways I have just lived on with them even though they are very scary and bothersome. I thought everything was fine until a heart surgeon told me about the dangerous R on T phenomenon. If you have PVC's and throw a PVC on the T wave you are as good as dead. You will be instantly thrown into a deadly arrhythmia. Has anyone ever heard of this and how often does it happen? I'm kinda scared?
