Summer, was it last year you were diagnosed with PVC's? Did your doctor not explain what these are to you? Premature Ventricular Contraction is an early beat within the ventrical the bottom chamber of your heart that can feel as if your heart has skipped a beat. For some people these are often and strong and others they are not so noticable. However, make no mistake these are arrhythmias (abnormal heartrhythm). To my knowledge there isnt much that can be done for PVC's. But do note these are not brought on by menopause or because of it.
Here is a link from the AMA on arrhythmias you might find useful...

Syncope, commonly known as fainting, refers to a sudden loss of consciousness, followed by a rapid and complete recovery. If you have symptoms of dizziness or lightheadedness, without loss of consciousness, this is called presyncope.
In some cases, vasovagal presyncope is triggered by an emotional response to a stimulus, such as fear of injury, heat exposure, the sight of blood, or extreme pain. In other cases, it is caused by abnormal nervous system responses to activities such as urinating, having a bowel movement, coughing, or swallowing. In still other cases, no trigger can be identified.
Happy Holidays to you,
