PVC's causing me grief....
I am a 43 year old male with PVCs. I had double bypass January 2010 and since then, I'm very paranoid about anything dealing with my heart. I had PVCs before my surgery and still have them today. I have had all of the tests like 24 hr. holter, treadmill stress test, EKG, etc and everything comes back normal. My cardiologist says that everything's fine, but I just can't get that through my skull!! My last test, which was done December 2010, came back normal. It showed that I was having PVCs and that they're unifocal and isolated and there is no R on T phenomena. My issue now is that my blood pressure has been running high within the last three weeks, being anywhere from 163/100 to 189/112. I am taking 50 mg. Metoprolol twice a day, but my pressure is still high and I'm still having what I consider too many PVCs.
I was just wondering if anyone out there is either having the same issue, or if anyone might have some extra advice or insight into this. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I guess I just also want to hear that everything's going to be o.k. from people who actually have this going on, versus doctors who have never personally experienced these things telling me everything's o.k.
