PVCS in the right side of the chest?

I'm not sure what's going on, but a lot of the palpitations I feel are in the right side right of my chest. I often feel discomfort there and the palpitations seem to be triggered by my right arm position and posture.

I also feel random flare ups of chest discomfort and tightness in the sternum area of my chest, which also seem to trigger pvcs.

Does anyone know what the underlying cause of these symptoms can be? Is it inflammation?

Get a sleep study done to determine if you have sleep apnea.

That's not related to what I posted, I didn't say anything about sleep.
You're missing the point of what I'm saying.

I have had PVCs and struggled with them for years and years.  Took a doctor to recommend I get a sleep study done to determine that sleep apnea and heart rhythm disturbances can be very related.

My PVCs all but go away when I use my coao therapy and they return if I get lazy and don't.

I'm trying to help you.

Google "PVCs and Sleep Apnea"
