hi everyone out there I'm 41 year old male who had been experiencing pvcs frequently and it's been driving me crazy.I also have gerd aka acid reflux I've read on many forums that's pvcs and gerd go hand in hand . I have had regular appointments with my cardiologisthe's done haltar monitor stress test echo cardiograms blood work ups and ekg's according to my heart doctor everything is ok and the pvcs are benign and not life threatening thank God!!! lol now on the other hand my stomach is a whole other story. I had a.m. endoscopy done and the gastroenterologist found yeast growing in my stomach inflamed intestines and stomach lining and also my esophagus was burned from the acid reflux medicine I had previously been in ( famotadine) for acid reflux. right now 8i am on 3 different meds that hopefully will get me better fast and I will list them so anyone else out there might be able to help themselves or ask their doctors about maybe switching their meds our trying a new approach because of you have bad stomach problems then out could def be connected I've had very bad had what feels to be skipping in my chest and also excessive belching me tell you the meds I'm on and anyone with any questions please don't hesitate to drop me a line 1st med nystatin that's for the yeast infection trimethobenzamide is for had and bloating and omeprazole-bicarb is for the acid reflux it's only been a day I'm on the meds and I'm starting to feel better physically and mentally don't let anyone tell you or make you think your crazy anxiety is in everyone's life it depends on how you handle it on an individual basis but only we know our bodies I really hope this helps someone because on the forums I've been on including this one has helped me dramatically about looking for certain things and signs of things and it's good to know other people are out there to support each other with this conditions good luck any questions get back to me

I have to agree with you that you should never ever listen to people who tell you it's all in your mind!! I had asthma for 13 years.. then I found out it was reflux induced.. Since I had my Nissen, no more asthma!! Reflux can do strange things to your body and health!!
I can relate to having to try to control the stomach problems and cardiac issues. I fortunately was recovering from the Nissen Fundoplication when my cardiac issues began. I am 64 now and in April of 2011 I had the NF. I was recovering fairly well and I began having atrial fibrillation and my heart began beating extremely fast then going very slowly.. I was diagnosed with not only atrial fibrillation but also Sick Sinus Syndrome. I ended up having a pacemaker inserted and then I had a cardioversion which lasted 4 months and in September 2012 I had a cardiac ablation performed and I have been a-fib free ever since. Now I am doing well and hoping to help others who have the same issues.
One thing I can tell you, when you have problems everyone needs a place to go and talk with people who have had or are having the same problems. Here at the forum, you will find the best of the best!! Until your issues are resolved, please feel free to come here and talk to us, you will always find that someone will answer your questions or will somehow try to lift you up. And after your issues are resolved, please come and share your wisdom with those beginning their journey to health.
It is not easy to deal with health issues, but it is easier when you share your concerns with people who care..
