So I have had PVC's for ten years. And recently I have been getting them all day long. every day. for over a week,. I'm talking at least 100 that I feel very strongly. They are truly upsetting, and scary. And to say the very least, are ruining my life. I am scared they are going to stay at this rate, and not go back to the occasional palps I used to feel.
I have been looking stuff up on the internet, and came across an article,/ study that say's that pvc's double chance of mortality/death in people with them then people without them. It basically said its a major indicator that your chances of heart attack or sudden death are high. especially with increased heartrate. and now I'm very freaked out. It showed all these statistics ect.. ugh. I shouldn't have read that.
My pvc's are definitely increased by any sort of activity. even just brushing my teeth, doing laundry, any walking around, or anything that will increase my resting heartrate. I'd say my resting heartrate while I'm laying down in bed ( when I usually do not feel them) is about 76. When I get up to take a shower, or brush my teeth.. lately.. I feel like my heart is really racing.. normally I check my pulse after I feel the first pvc. its at about 98. and with that comes one pvc after another. Feels better when I lay down.
But I can't lay down in bed forever. I'm only 34. I have a job. and a life., or at least I had one. I am now so sad. depressed, and scared all day. scared doesn't even cover it. Terrified is more appropriate. Should I just get used to the fact and be ok with that I might have a heart problem and drop dead? I'm otherwise just so tired of being scared.
