about 2 and a half years ago I developed what seemed to be "skipped heartbeats" which I found out were PAC's and PVC's. My doctor had me do a stress test (I was 34 then) and said that I had runs of them. He said he would only see runs of them in older people but then went on to say that it was nothing to worry about. I also had an echocardiogram (normal), EKG (normal), blood tests for artery irritation (normal), normal Blood Pressure. Since that time I watch what I eat (very limited caffeine and alcohol) and started an easy excercise regimen including rowing, and have tried to really forget about them (or at least not worry about the PVC's). Fastforward
2 and a half years and I really have gotten into rowing. It is very grueling if you excercise hard and whenever I do, I get huge Extrasystoles/Extra heartbeats. I really had not worried about them until a few days ago when I excercised really hard (doing a race piece) and of course had huge PVC's afterwards. The next morning I awoke to blurry vision in one eye (not terrible but enough to be annoying). The eyesight in this eye before was perfect 20/20 and I wondered if my PVC's were to blame. My blood pressure was 117 over 78 and I had no headache or other symptoms. Upon doing some investigation, I found that some people with PVC's can have blood pool in their heart (which coagulates) and then gets pumped up into the brain which can cause a stroke or stroke like symptoms. Any comments on this would be appreciated.
