Q: can improper sleeping/anxiety cause muscle smasms in the left chest above the breast?I get scared because it feels
like my heart when in good sense I know its muscular?
A: Yes, muscle spasms could be increased with anxiety and poor sleep.
Q: Can bronchitis cause&increase in pvc's when you are not rested&even though I am staying very hydrated I am
just not hungry/ am afraid to eat for fear of triggering skips.
A: Bronchitis in general does not increase PVCs although the stress of the illness may. Eating should not affect the PVCs.
Q: I notice more pvc's when I have eaten a banana-conincidence or something more?

the chest(never no pain just see the skin)?
A: A variety of different things can cause spasms including electrolyte imbalance, stress or injury to the muscle.
Q: Is it possible that I have had pvc's for most of my life
anyone else who copes with this..
does anyone recognize how posture especially while seated has any effects on pvc's?
I was diagnosed with PAC or PVC (I don't remember which) about 10 years ago. It has gone away for months at a time, but lately it has been with me daily, mostly after dinner in the evening.
I have noticed that it seems to hit me when I'm slouching slightly in bed a couple of hours after dinner. I don't think it's really posture-related, though, because a change in posture or position almost never has a lessening effect.
Have you found that when you stand up it gets better? Perhaps you, like me, are experience the flutters at a particular time of day, and you coincidentally are sitting down then...?
Just wanted to offer some words of assurance: I have a bzillion pvc and occasional psvt. I remember very well when they started and how frightened I would get with just a few! The fear then can cause the chest pains and digestive troubles. I have been through all of these questions (and once thought bananas brought them on but now think maybe they help -- ha ha!). I only have two children and that is a lot to deal with, so I imagine that the stress of parenting (and catching everything they get plus worse) is what is really going on. Anxiety has a way of taking over and causing a LOT of symptoms so if you can get that under control you can deal with the pvcs better.
As to postural: I do think slouching or bedtime can bring them on and/or make them more noticable, and once they "kick in" then changing posture can't get rid of them. For me, slouching at the computer is often a trigger! But mostly, it is related to the level of adrenaline in my system, generally socially/emotionally stressful times make the pvcs really frequent. PSVT for me can be triggered by other things (like only one glass of wine!) but good old pvcs seem to be a stress thing.
It is so reassuring to have come here tonight to see the responses..
I had been doing so well with ignoring them..meaning not letting them trigger off my panic..but last night I had some really hard beats and it scared me..
and they are often harder at times of quiet/inactive..
and it is so weird that I seem to get an increase of pvc's when I eat a banana..I know it seems weird but..well you know..
I could not believe you felt that way too..
and I notice them more when I am at the computer so I have been very careful for not sitting for prolonged periods of time....I do not think that standing helps but I do know I have them more often while sitting/slouching..
after a heavy meal..and not drinking enough water..and I definatley have some sort of stomach thing that triggers them...
I have read articles on improper positon of the stomach..here is the link..
I think it is a good article and if your not allowed to post links then I apologize...
It helps me to talk to others that experience this..
I WANTED TO ADD SOMETHING TO MY ABOVE POST. I AM DO FOR MY MENSES, AND THAT ALWAYS SEEMS TO PLAY A PART. I WONDER IF A WOMANS HORMONES GO UP OR DOWN AT THIS TIME? AND IF THAT WOULD CAUSE ARRYTHMIAS MORE.
IS NON SUSTAINED V TACH SOMETHING LIKE THIS?
