I've had about twenty one PVC'S per min. for about two weeks now! They seem to take breaks here and there, but never rally last long (the breaks in PVC'S that is). Also, during this time, I've noticed my heart rate is around 48 to 58 bpm w/ slightly higher BP (around 128/91). Now, the low heart rate I can not explain as I am not on any beta blockers nor am I on anything else other than Xanax XR for the anxiety caused by the constant PVC's, and omeprazole for an ulcer.

I'm currently thinking about seeing an Electrophysiologist, as the PVC'S are getting worse! I've had stress test's (three), holter monitor's, and echo's preformed with all test coming back normal! The thing is, every time I go into see my Dr. the PVC'S are not as bad (21 per min.) as they are around 5 to 10 a min.

My question is this:
What should I ask of an Electrophysiologist?
Is it my Medicine that is causing this new found glory of 21 PVC'S per min.?

I'm not healthy (as the pvc's hit hard when i exercise) enough to warrant a heart rate of 48 to 58 bpm. Also, I recently seen a neurologist about constant pain in my legs/feet. He told me that I "might have" autonomic neuropathy with peripheral neuropathy but need to have a "micro fiber" test preformed?? I was under the impression that one needed to be diabetic before one would/could get this type of issue with their nerves?

Any help would be great!

One more thing... Is it safe to exercise when you have 21 pvc's per min?

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.
I sometimes feel as though my heart skips beats which feels abnormal and scary.  My doctor often says that physical issues are stress-related so may I suggest you seek the help of a cardiologist to see what further testing you may need.

I think that anything that we don't truly understand has the potential to be frightening.
Please let us know how things work out at the Drs.
