Thanks very much for your response, I appreciate it
I am currently taking symbicort, omnaris, and clarinex. I have gotten off symbicort as I was told that it may be contributing to my heart racing. I feel a bit better today. I never really have the heart racing during the day, only at night.
Not sure if that helps any. I am 31 yr old, pretty fit, work out 4 times/week at least
Hi. I am new here, and stumbled on this forum in search of answers.
Like many of you, I have suffered from PVC's for years, have seen multiple doctors, have had the battery of tests, and still am without an answer.
A few years ago, I started a journal in an attempt to notice any clues as to what made the PVC's start/continue/stop/return. Looking over the journal recently I noticed that my symptoms seem to subside in the months of october, november, december. I live in New Jersey. I also noticed that seasonal allergy symptoms in many instances, accompanied my PVC symptoms. In fact, the PVC's subsided this year about a month ago (right on schedule), only to return in full force last sunday, which coincidentally, followed a major allergy attack (lots of sneezing, nose blowing). So it crossed my mind this week that just perhaps, the two are related? I thought to myself that I was losing my mind even considering this connection! Boy, was I was so happy to stumble on the posts here.
I have considered taking an allergy medication just to test it out, but I do tend to react to antihistamines with a rapid heartrate, so I am really torn. Perhaps I can try a half dose of benadryl at night to start.
To further complicate matters, I have also read on other forums that allergies and the subsequent sneezing/coughing can aggravate a hiatal hernia, which seems also have a connection to PVCs according to many posters. So if this is the case, antihistamines will not help after the horse is out of the barn, but rather would help as a preventative.
What are your thoughts, and have any of you had other updates since this was last discussed?
Thanks so much!
