As a sufferer from PVC's, I have certainly felt the hard "thump" ones that stop you in your tracks and shoot you full of adrenaline.

As I've come to accept the condition I do not get nearly as many of those as I used to. Now when I get what I call "bad days" of PVC's, they are much lighter. Definitely can feel them, but they don't thump, don't release adrenaline, it just feels like a tiny hiccup in the lower heart/stomach area.

Which started making me wonder if these feelings are something else and not PVC's? Can PVC's vary so much in strength? Before when I had them every one of them was strong. Now they are "weak"? I've had an endoscopy and they found nothing wrong with stomach/esophagus

Hey there!

Yes pvc's can be weak or strong!!
I used to prefer the thumps but now I'd rather have the weak ones as you can ignore them if you really try!!
I think its something to do where the PVC originates!
If the Tricuspid valve is open when a PVC happens I think the blood is pushed out more easy!!
And the opposite if the valve is closed!
I think that's how you describe it, I'd check just to make sure!!
Even though pvc's scare me I also find it quite fascinating!! :-)

I'm just kind of pissed because for about a month I had very intermittent PVC's but the last week they've stepped up in frequency and there appears nothing really I can do about it.

That's typical of pvc's!!
You think that they might have left you alone only to return with a vengeance!!
I find the lighter pvc's to be more frequent than the thumpy ones!!
Hope you find relief soon!! Try really hard not to get stressed because that makes the irritable focus even more irritable!! I speak from experience!!
I try my best to ignore them and sometimes it works!!
I see it as if I don't mind them ..they don't mind me!! :-)
