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

Hi Kirk,
Have you been put on beta-blockers? If not talk to your Dr. about giving them a try. Also what is the reasoning of your doctor to why you they won't do an ablation? If all else fails change doctors.
Do you have other symptoms from your pvc's? dizziness, chest pain?
How is your blood pressure?
With me my blood pressure runs low, I was put on blood pressure meds at first to see if that would help with my pvc's and pac's ,the problem with that was it made my blood pressure drop to much which cause my hands and mouth to go numb, I thought I was having a stroke .Nothing the Doctor tried worked for my pvc's .Then I had my ablation which didn't turn out so well for me.I posted my story on here about having a heart attack during my ablation.
My case was unheard of rare.
Don't give up hope fight for the problems you are having until you find the right Doctor who will listen and help you with your pvc's.
Let me know how you are doing.
Best of luck ,

Hi Kirk, I've been in law enforcement 20 years myself. I do get flip-flopping heart beats out of nowhere, particularly when at rest. They are strong and very obvious. Sometimes I even get a racing heart rate, again even when I'm at rest. I'm in good shape and work out regularly. I just had a bypass surgery about two weeks ago. Wasn't heart related, but was artery related. I don't think it had anything to do with the flip-flopping heart beat.

I was told when I went in for testing in 2007 not to worry as well. I guess I don't understand with half the population falling prey to cardiovascular disease how they can just say "ignore it, it's nothing." Obviously there's something there. Heart rhythms just don't beat like that.
