Hello all!
I am a frequent drinker (before I was diagnosed with PVCs), which was 2 months ago. I have only drank three times since then because I am scared that something bad is going to happen. The first time I got pretty buzzed at a Super Bowl party and the second time I had 2 beers. Both times I didn't think to check my pulse so I don't know if my PVCs were worse than usual. A couple weeks ago I had 3 beers. I checked my pulse and I seemed to have more PVCs than normal. My question is, how dangerous is it to drink having PVCs? I am only 31 years old and don't want to have to be sober if it isn't necessary. I have very high anxiety and this PVC diagnosis has been all I have been thinking about and its driving me crazy!!! I just want to be normal again :(
Has anyone drank alcohol with PVCs and still living to tell me its okay to have some drinks occasionally? lol... okay had to throw a joke in there!!!

The best person to ask this question is your cardiologist. Give his/her office a call & speak to the nurse who can talk to the dr on your behalf. Be honest about how little or much you tend to drink. Good luck.

Hi Straydog. Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, due to constant questioning to the drs office, the cardiologist I was seeing has denied me further treatment :( At this point I don't even think I need to run more tests, I just want a consultation with someone. Its sad because I have been seeing that dr for many years for my annual MVP checkups :( I posted on here because I thought that someone could relate to me and tell me their story.
