PVC's are usually benign (harmless) when there are by themselves. PVC's are the occasional premature contraction of the ventricle. Most people get them but they usually don't feel them. Sometimes when they happen it feels like your heart is beating in your throat and takes your breath away. When you have associated chest pain you did the right thing to follow through with tests to see if your heart is being damaged. Your doctor would perform CK-mb and troponin blood tests to make sure your heart is not damaged. Negative results are good and your heart is still getting the nutrients and oxygen it needs. Keep being followed by your cardiologist and make positive lifestyle changes.
