PVC’s Just don’t go away

Im a male 46 eat relatively healthy and exercise about 3 times per week. Overall in decent shape, my family suffers from hypertension and unfortunately I got it. So I Was was diagnosed with benign PVC’s about a year ago. Had Echo and stress test all good. Did have slight plaque in my coronary Arteries. The Dr. gave me Lipitor 40mg daily just to be on the safe Plus Valsarten 160mg/HCTZ 12.5 mg. Blood pressure is now under control. I went on a cruise 20 days ago and I began to get more PVC’s than usual. Normally I get maybe 1 an hour or so. All of a sudden it turned into 1 every 5 to 10 min. I got off the cruise 3 weeks ago and they haven’t stopped . I’ve been reading and tried everything, emergency C 2-3 times a day . Quit drinking coffee switched to decaf just once per day. Taking magnesium. All this for all of last week, yesterday all of a sudden I felt better but today they are back. I was so happy. I’m so depressed I don’t know what else to do. I’ve been wearing a Holter monitor for3 days. They will probably tell me it’s nothing to worry about , which is easier said than done. I’ve read Gaba might work, anyone have good results with taking GABA. Any other suggestions?

Are you on a beta blocker. This helps some people. For me I have good days where I feel none to one or two and bad days where I feel them all day. There is no rhyme or reason to when they happen they just do. Just something we have to live with as miserable as they are.
