I have had an irregular heartbeat for 4/5 years. my cardiologist has rulled out heart disease--says they are benign PVC's. Since I am 48, i assumed menopause may be causing it. My cardiologist ruled out thyroid
problems, caffiene doesn't make them worse or better. i have tried the vitamin, mineral route. the only thing that helps is taking 20mg of Paxil. i tried to take a beta blocker, it only made me feel depressed, not in control and the heartbeats did not go away. does anyone have any other remedies to try. I wouldn't put this on my worst enemy. no one understands how frustrating this is if they have not experienced it. it is a problem you have no control over. I am relieved to know there are many people that have this because for a long time i felt "different" because I did not know of anyone that experienced this arrythmia problem. i would like to hear from others and how they deal with it. thanks, jacki from texas
