I was having pvc's every five seconds or so for about 5 weeks straight.  Finally, after getting tired of having them, I went to the doctor where he found that I had strep throat. I am currently still undergoing some tests, but am almost certain the strep is the reason for the pvc's. Anyone had similar situations?
Dear Kathy
Strep throat does not cause PVCs per se. Any serious illness or cause of stress can contribute to PVCs.
I hope this is useful. Feel free to write back. I wish you the best of luck.
If you would like to set up an appointment with one of our cardiologists here at the Cleveland Clinic please feel free to call 1-800-CCF-CARE.
