I'm with Suzy, I have the same issue - my PVC's seem to come and go sometimes with no rhyme or reason - but I have figured out they come almost every time I eat. My doctor said any kind of stimulant can trigger them - thus sugar, caffeine, etc., but also mine come no matter what I eat. Caffeine does seem to make them stronger. I guess if I could just stop eating, I know my episodes would go way down
. Until then, I have to get used to my heart jumping around like a jumping bean inside my chest
. So much fun!
Anyway, I get mine least first thing in the morning (when it has been longest since I ate or drank, of course).
I too just started on Toprol XL and on my 3rd day, they seem a little weaker but are still there.
My doctor and cardiologist both say these are nothing at all to worry about, once having passed the stress tests, etc. . I really hate it though when they say everyone has them. Yes, I know this, but not everyone has them every few heartbeats, I just don't believe that. I NEVER had them like this (maybe once a month before, and they would only happen one time, and no more) until a couple of months ago. The best way I can understand it is that once your electrical path to your heart gets messed up, it tends to stay that way.
But w/ all our doctors saying the same thing - not to worry, I guess we should. I know we are all trying.
Take care all!!
