Ken1945 "PVCs can lead to a more lethal arrhythmias"...they can? can you explain where that information comes from? define "lethal"? I'd love to hear your information about this since I've found very little on dangerous arrhythmia's in the past 2 years.
I ask because during the last health chat a few weeks ago I asked about this topic http://www.medhelp.org/health_chats/archive/64
and this is one of most asked question I've seen in this community
mzak69 have you been evaluated by a dr and what did they find? it's important to know what's going on so you can treat the arrhythmia; don't ignore symptoms like I did and end up with a larger problem in the end
all arrhythmia's should be evaluated by a cardiologist & EP with a full cardiac workup and blood work that includes an electrolyte panel to check for things like magnesium, potassium etc; until you do that please be careful adding supplements in case you're already too high in one of them.
there's always alot of debate about arrhythmia's between doctors as well as the medical community as a whole; in general they say unless you're very symptomatic or over say 15-20% of pvc's daily dr's wont' even look at ablation and normally they treat 6,000 - 8,000 pvc's daily with meds & lifestyle changes unless there are other circumstances
I believe adrenaline driven arrhythmia's are due to a mixed signal between the brain, ANS (autonomic nervous system) and heart; or at least that's what I've been told when I talk to my drs.
I haven't found anything that calms mine; it's a running joke in my family about me being the Hulk..I can't get angry when I do my heart beats out of my chest :P I would love to know if you find something; I can't take alot of supplements due to my quirky ANS and ICD.
