PVC's are normal cardiac events that do not lead in the future to heart disease or sudden death. They're a nuisance but no threat to life or health even if they occur every other beat. Only people with abnormal structure or function of the heart need to fear PVC's and your heart structure and function are normal as shown on the echo.
Coffee makes PVC's more frequent in some people. Fear, anxiety and neosynephrine, may make them more frequent, as does lying down. Exercise makes them less frequent, but just during the exercise, not during rest after exercise. Moderate alcohol doesn't affect PVC's in most people, nor does smoking tobacco. Cocaine increases PVC's dangerously.
Well, I think the biggest change in life style you can make is to ignore the PVC's as not harmful but normal. Reducing anxiety will probably decrease the PVC's, but even if it doesn't, at least you wont worry so much.
Please remember I am not a physician as well as one of the members/moderators in the anxiety forum so keep on talking with all of us.
