Hi everyone

Just wanted to know from all the sufferers out there of these horrible PAC/PVC'a whether or not you have an elevated blood pressure?

Now I know the doctors always use the "white coat" effect to say our blood pressures are sometimes high. Each time mine is measured, it's in the 140/80 mark sort of. They say its okay as I think they assume it drops when not under the stress if being in the doctors office. I have checked it at home though on a few occasions and it stays roughly the same. What I am curious about though are the PVC/PAC's and their possible relation to the high blood pressure.

I read an article which mentioned it as a possible cause for the contractions apart from all the usual others. I have also read in many people's posts how they say that when they are stressed their PVC/PAC's always seem worse. Now I know one thing through all this searching and that's the effect of stress on blood pressure. Furthermore the anxiety/stress combination that is caught in a vicious circle will keep feeding the high blood pressure.

What I am asking is that has anyone out there had their blood pressure lowered either by exercise, supplements (garlic etc) or medication and seen an actual improvement in the severity of their contractions??

I don't think I'm on to anything but just wanted to get feedback from the many of you who may possibly know a thing or two about this through your various attempts to relieve your PVC/PAC's???

I know lowering my blood pressure is a good thing to do anyway so will work on it over time but just wanted some additional input in the meantime.

Many thanks guys and gals

Wanted to add this below, its just my observations of some of the posts i have read on these forums, so its not any medical advice, just my observation:

.......Just another thing I was thinking about in relation to complaints from PVC and PAC sufferers I have read. Some report an increase or a decrease with the followings actions

1: eating
2: drinking liquids (not alcahol)
3: walking
4: bending over to pick up something
5: quick upper torso motions like leaning into the back if a car to get something
6: raising arms above shoulders

Well all these things either increase or decrease blood pressure.

The eating and drinking lowers blood pressure for up to 30-60 minutes after ingestion.......might explain why some people feel temporary relief???

The walking raises systolic blood pressure to help get oxygenated blood around the body.......might explain the increase????

With 4,5 and 6 the blood pressure instantly increases as a result of gravity changing the position of blood in the body.......might explain why some report a sudden premature contraction????

Then in relation to just everyday that each of us live with these things and the added stress that varies depending on a good day, good few days, good week or even good month.......might explain why some people have periods where they are less intense than others or even sometimes go away for a while?????

This also might have something to do with certain supplements that supposedly "lower" blood pressure like the garlic or the CoQ10 or whatever else offers "lowered blood pressure" results........could the many people suffering that actual get some relief due to the actual lowering of blood pressure????

All of the above statements are by no means concrete but when thinking about it seem to fit in with so many complaints we all have. I'm not sure if its a stab in the dark as I can't see it not being thought of before? Perhaps it has and all my suspicions are not related to the PAC or PVC problems we have. I just keep hunting high and low for answers as I'm am sure so many of you other sufferers do too.

Let me know if anyone out there has seen an improvement in their symptoms with the lowering their blood pressure??

I am going to aim to try and lower mine anyway as even if their is no evidence to support it, lowering my blood pressure will be a huge benefit anyway and I'm sure for anyone out there who has high blood pressure too

Well, I look forward to hearing what any of you guys and girls out there might suggest

Stay strong
