PVC's and medication

Hi~~
I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has very frequent PVC's but is not on medication for them. It seems like most people that I've talked to with these, if they have them frequently, are at least on some kind of medication for them. I've been having them for over ten years, and have tried medication, which might work for a while, but then just seems to make the problem worse again. I am currently probably having PVC's in the thousands per day, I know I have to get a holter moniter to see the amount, but I guess it would add up to that, if I am having one every 10-20 beats on the average. Sometimes it's more than that. Sometimes my heart seems especially irritable, like after I eat a meal, or if I'm tired. I've had some general tests done, like the echo, and I had the nuclear stress test, and there has never really been a cause found. The only thing I can come up with is that it might be stress related, or hormonal. Usually I will read how, generally, PVC's are not considered dangerous, if you have an otherwise healthy heart. But, then sometimes I will read how having more than 6 per minute is dangerous regardless, and I know I have them that often many times.
Thanks for any help, Val
