I am new here so will begin with my history to shed some light on myself. I am a 45 year old female. I was hospitalized at the age of 40 for having a questionable EKG. In the hospital, every heart test was performed including an angiogram. The results of these tests was Mitral Valve Prolapse. Before the heart episode I had experienced several months of panic attacks which subsided without the use of meds. At age 42, the panic attacks and generalized anxiety returned. I took paxil for 1 year and ativan as needed. Though I no longer suffer from panic attacks or GAD and am med free, I now have PVCs. The PVCs became noticable to me about a year ago. Since that time, I have had several EKGs, treadmill tests, echos, and blood workups. The PVCs show up on the tests, but the doctors say all is fine. My GP prescribed a beta blocker, but my cardiologist told me not to take it so I don't. I have a very stressful job, have had a severe trauma, and am in menopause but none of those cause me the stress that these PVCs do. I smoke and self medicate with 2-3 drinks after work to take away the fear (I know, a vicious cycle. I'll spank myself to alleviate that job for the rest of you LOL). My last workup was in Nov. 07. Recently, I have been having an increased number of "felt" PVCs. Is it time to go back for more tests?
