So a year ago I had an Echo Test , EKG and 24 hr Monitor because I was having PVC BUT ONLY having maybe one or two a week or only one or two a day if I was having a panic attack. I learned to control my anxiety and had cut them down to about 1 or 2 a month . Then last week out of the blue I started having 25-35 a day that I could feel , a couple of the days I have only counted 10 but for the most part there have been many . I went back to the Heart Doc who did an EKG ( at the time of the EKG I had no PVC so I don't know if they would show up or not ) he told me I would be find and my heart was healthy and sent me on my way. They still have not stopped and I am wondering if I should get a second opinion. I don't understand why all of a sudden I would start having this many in a day and I feel like my heart doc just chalked it up to anxiety because of that first apt I had with him a year ago. They are starting to really scare me . I am 34 , I exercise , I am not having any caffeine or alcohol . I am scared now to even exercise . Anyone with a similar story of them just starting out of the blue ?

It is very common and the more you concentrate on counting them, they more stressed you will become. Relax, and go back to exercising.

Johnny, the fact that you are now taking a daily count clearly shows your anxiety is rearing its ugly head. Had the cardiologist thought you were in any kind of danger, he would have told you plain & simple. Do you really think he would risk losing his medical license by not being honest with his patients? Sure, you can go get a 2nd opinion, maybe that will make you feel better. But, don't be surprised when you get told the same thing.

Take care.
