Hello, my name is Kirk. I'm 52 years of age, and I have been suffering from PVC's for over 30 years.
You would think by now I would be used to them and be able to deal with them right?
Not the case with me. They drive me insane. I have had every test/procedure done except for ablation, which I have been desperately trying to have done now at this point.
I have had an Echo (numerous), 24 hour holter monitor (numerous), stress EKG, EKG and several other tests. Doctors all tell me "Don't worry about them, they won't kill you, you just need to learn to live with them"
Unlike a lot of people, I don't drink alcohol, I don't drink coffee, I don't use illegal drugs and I try to live a healthy lifestyle. I'm 6'0 feet tall and 176 pounds.
I am a type "A" personality though and I work as a law enforcement officer, which of course can be high stress at times.
Recently, I have been having a boat load of PVC'S. More then I could ever remember in the last 20 plus years. It got so bad that I went to the Emergency Room the other day because I just couldn't take it anymore and I figured that something really bad was going on with my heart.
Once again they sent me home and told me to follow up with my doctor.
Can anyone offer me any other positive alternatives for these crazy beats, anything at all. I tried Magnesium Oxide 400 MG, Fish Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar. Nothing so far seems to help.
Anyone have any good ideas, I sure would appreciate it.
Much Love, Kirk
