Today I went to the ER for feeling extremely faint and tired and just miserable for over a week, I found out today that I have Pvc, It must be pretty serious seeing my pulse go from 40 to 105 and all over the place, im going to see the cardiologist monday but im really concerned since it seems like mine affects my overall health more than others. Im only 20 years old. I really dont know what my health is going to be like next week or later on, will i even be able to have kids?

Hi Kassi Lynn,
sorry to hear you're not feeling well. PVCs are normally benign if your heart is structurally normal. However they are really scary. I think it is great that you will see a cardiologist--s/he will likely do some further testing like another ekg, echo (ultrasound of the heart), holter monitor (sort of like wearing an ekg for 24 hours). I have pvcs daily, and I have not been told that I can not have more children, but again, seeing the cardiologist should help shed light on why your pvcs are causing you to feel unwell.

The doctor couldnt really explain it well but when im doing any activity my pulse drops and I lose oxygen to my brain wich gives me my symptoms. I have heart problems on both sides of my family. Also it wasnt told or confirmed to me but my ekg read that my left atrial was enlarged. my guess is they cant confirm because the cardiologist needs to see it. crrently im questioning wether or not to work until i see him im still dizzy from getting dressed.

My feeling is that if you are still feeling unwell, you should call the ER or your primary to see what you should do. They should not discharge you if you are not in stable condition. Hopefully once you can see the cardiologist , you will have the answers that you need.
