Apr 5, 2018 · Heart Rhythm Conditions – Welcome to the group in Heart Rhythm Conditions

The only symptom I have is the flutter or flip flop feeling in my chest, sometimes making me cough. It happens every day, often on throughout the day. Sometimes it will wake me up at night. My heart rate stays pretty normal through activity and resting. Resting… mid 60's and while active, normally around 105-110. BP is also under control, taking Toprol 25 mg and Aldactone 12.5 mg. I have an appt with my Cardiologist on the 27th of this month. Has anyone been told by a Cardiologist that PVC's won't damage or weeken the heart? That is my biggest concern. I constantly worry about that.

I know how you feel. These pvc's have turned me into a hypochondriac. I was first diagnosed with pvc's when I was 23 and I am now 63. I'm still here complaining about them, so I know there not going to kill me!! I just started getting them frequently this past couple weeks. I've read on line that it is very common and not to worry but that is easier said then done. However, I think that anxiety plays a big role in the episodes your feeling. Stress can play such a big roll. I honestly think that is most of my problem. Try and take your mind off of them by keeping your self busy. Try talking with a friend or family member for support. This website has help me a great deal! It's nice to know I'm not the only person having these issues. We can get through it…we've come this far with few battle scars, so try not to worry.

I feel your pain. I was diagnosed with pvc's when I was 23 yrs old. I'm still around complaining about it and I'm 63 now. I'm still getting them, except a lot more frequent. They can scare the heck out of a person, but as I've been told many times, it's a common symptom, so don't panic. I know…easier said then done. I still panic as I also have heart disease in our family. However, I'm still putting up with this and I'm still here, so I think you'll be fine. Try and take your mind off it. Best to keep yourself busy with friends or family. Hope I helped a little.

I'm not sure I qualify for this group. I'm dealing with frequent pvc's and it's quite unnerving. Everything else is okay. BP is under control…Pulse is normal range…no fatigue or chest pain. Feel just fine except for those PVC'S. Can they weekend or damage your heart? I've had them for years (23 yrs old) but never as often as I'm getting them now (63 yrs old). Scared it can effect my heart. I have no known heart problems that I'm aware of.

I was first diagnosed with PVC's when I was 23. I am now 63 and they seem to be a lot more frequent. I have PVC's periodically throughout the day, almost every day. If I'm lucky I might skip a day or so. Not sure why. Heart rate is fine (70-80) Blood pressure is fine 128/66. Not light headed or get out of breath. I still do my exercise without any probems, but I'm worried that these episodes will damage or weaken my heart. I've had NO heart issues in the past, but do have a family history of heart disease. Very unnerving. It's turning me in to a hypochondriac! 🙁
