So i have had PVC's for going on 14 years, 37 Y/O Male, Normal weight
I had a holter monitor done in 08' and it showed 6600 PVC's in 24h after starting 240mg verapamil, later that year they just vanished. I maybe had a handful or two in 24h, a drastic change. in 2018 i wanted to get off verapamil because it caused my colon to slow down making me sick from CIC, so i saw a new electro heart doc and he ordered me off the meds and a week later had a stress test and 48h holter. Doc called with the results and he was fine with everything and i could stay off the meds.
Everything was fine for the last two years, I would go days without feeling a skip and when i did, it would cause anxiety and eventually go away. It changed however when i went to Disney World with my wife and friends in OCT 2019, i got basically dehydrated at the tail end of the trip and noticed skips while i was at the last park. I brushed it off and went on. I then went to my Gastro doc in the same month to get put on prucalopride for my CIC since i did a ton of research and it had a very good heart safety rating, however, it caused my heart rate to jump into the 130 about 30 minutes after taking the pill and i discontinued it after 4 doses, including a doseage adjustment. Seems like i was allergic to something in it because it made me very hot and raised my body temp. Since then i have been hyper aware of my heart.
Everytime i have a PVC i have bad anxiety and i have been stressing over it for a couple of months now. I randomly get PVC's with a kick of adrenaline, like when i wake up in the morning for work. If i majorly stress my heart, like clearing a lot of snow, i will get PVC's, which is no different from before, but now that i am hyper aware, its even worse. Even standing up too fast or getting out of my car after driving for a while might kick up a pvc or two. The sad part is, i only have on average less than 10 a day. Some days i dont feel any at all. I do have a follow up with my Doc in less than 3 weeks but i was curious if anyone else out there has had stuff like this happen. The anxiety is crippling, i am too scared to even book a trip back to Japan
