Hi,    I've been diagnosed with  PVCs   Have as many as 22,000  a day, after wearing a holter montor
Had Echo,  and it said the lower left venticle has enlarged a little and has a  65% injection factor..so that
isn't bad...  I had an ablation a year ago,,,didn't help,,went to Cleveland Clinic,,the Electrophysian there,
top guy,  said to "Just go home and live your live,,no meds will help because the cell that is creating the
PVC's in your Aorta and hard to reach.    They extra beats make me nuts,,especially at night when I'm
trying to sleep.  I take NO meds for them as none worked.  Good grief,,,does anyone have this, and what
do you do to stop them, if anything.  I'm 67 years old,  and this has been going on for about 3 years now.
Thanks for any help.

Edit:  I gave your thread a title.  :)

22,000 is just plain nasty.  I am so sorry you are going through this and I am sure it is kicking up your anxiety as it would mine. 
I know CC is one of the best but perhaps a second opinion would be helpful. 
In one report I read Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, AZ  rates number 1 in heart hospitals.
Cleveland Clinic in Weston, FL came in number 2.  This is from a 2011 report by Thomson Reuters.

Very scary----*but....wow 22,000 PVCs a day....! shakehead    Don't know how you live w that-

My cardio told me same thing---"Robert....just live with

it---I would not even suggest ablation.....as the issue is probaly "multi focal'....& doubt we could ablate all of the irritable cells!"-- rolleyes

But---trust your Cardio--!  Btw....are you taing any beta blockers?  i take Tenormin....(Atelenol)--  25 mg a day--it helps a bit!  Maybe you should take your beta blocker  an...hour before bedtime!  Hope my words were of some help---Take care--Robert
