20,000+ PVC's a day!!
Went to ER a 6 weeks ago was admitted to cardiac unit since I was in bigimeny and had chest tightness, etc. Echocardiogram normal. Nuclear treadmill stress test normal, all blood work normal. No high blood pressure, cholesterol great, magnesium, potassium and the usual suspects all good.
Only things abnormal then and now is that I continue to throw 20,000+ PVC's a day. After finally getting holter monitor results back I am scheduled to meet with EP.......but that is 7 more weeks before he can see me.
Cardiologist believes problem is in right ventricle, however, when a cardiologist says these are benign, he or she has never experienced what I am experiencing. This has completely rearranged and affected my quality of life and is about to drive me nuts. I have taken verapamil (no difference @ 250mg daily) and now switching to metaprolol. I also take 1mg Ativan to help me sleep since the constant thumping in my chest keeps me awake.
This came out of the blue.
I can hardly work....no energy....shortness of breath--numbing fatigue.
Anyone had ablation that worked? Any words of wisdom welcome
