I am really worried about PVC's. Here is my situation. I get them often, at least 100 a week I am guessing. Sometimes they make me dizzy. I usually get them more when i am tired, stressed, over caffeinated, or drank too much. (I have quit caffeine and booze.) Are they dangerous? Also, my big question is, I read about people on here developing conditions in which they have 1000's of PVC's a day, practically constantly. I am only 27, and I am worried about developing a more serious case of PVC's. Does anyone know my chances of getting a worse case? Thanks, I could use some reassurance.

Hi mingmalefactor,
PVC are not dangerous in a structurally normal heart even when you are getting 1,000s a day.  They are just VERY, VERY annoying. I'm sorry you are having them. Try to relax. Stress and worry  and even being tired can make you have more. I'm sorry but I don't think there is any way to predict whether they'll increase. I find that mine (and I usually have PAC's) cycle. Sometimes they are horrible and many. Then I may not feel them for weeks. ????? No rhyme or reason. My cardiologist says they just do that and he suffers from them too. Neither of us take medication for it although they sometimes prescribe a beta blocker to lessen the feeling of them. The beta blockers do not reduce the number you will get though.
I quess you have been checked out by a doctor since you know that you are experiencing PVC's. ?????? If you haven't, you really do need to go see one just to make sure that is what you are having and not something else and to make sure your heart is structurally normal.  Hopefully they will just cycle to the 'quiet phase' and stay there a good long time!!! smurf  (It's what we all HOPE for!!!!!!)

You should definately go to the doctor and find out if that is what you have. I know it's hard to go because of worrying about all the possibilities, but take it from me. You might be pleasantly surprised at just how simple it is. I'm not saying it's easy to deal with this by any means. I still have a hard time dealing with mine even though I have been told twice it's not going to kill me or hurt me in anyway. It's hard to ignore them.

If it is indeed PVC's and your heart is in good shape then you have nothing to worry about. I have a heart murmur which cause my extra beats. I was told at least six time by the doctor that it was nothing to worry about in the same visit. So just go and talk to the doc. Hope all works out.
