Dear Wanda, thank you for your question. I suspect that your PVC's are caused by gastroesophageal reflux which should be treated with aggressive acid-reducing medications (Prilosec or Prevacid) and not papaya enzymes. The irritation of your esophagus could be contributing to the PVC's that you're having. I don't think that water is a contributing factor, however. Caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol all cause PVC's so you are smart to avoid these agents. Like most people with PVC's, I suspect that you have a normal heart and that your PVC's are mostly a nuisance to you. Most likely, your PVC's do not portend an adverse prognosis. Thus, it may help for you to speak to your physician to develop strategies for coping with your PVC's in the long-term. Good luck!
