Another question

News since my post yesterday about my enlarged heart:

The cardiologist's office called to schedule a thallium stress test because I had so many PVC's on a regular stress test yesterday after having none on a resting ekg and none on a stress test last year. They want to rule out blockage before concluding that my heart may have some permanent damage.

Anyone have a similar experience? Are PVC's during exercise especially indicative of heart disease?

Re: Another question

How many PVC's did you get during the regualr stress test?

i had maybe ll of 5 when i di mine, during cool down only...and they werent concrend about it....that being said i changed to another Cardio who was a little more attentive

But if i ever get some during exercise its usually just a few while im cooling down. Ocasionally ill get one once in a while during exercise though too

oh and im 32yr male if that helps at all

Re: Another question

Do you only get PVC's while working out? Do you ever get them at resting?

Re: Another question

Thanks for your answers and questions.

I used to get PVC's all the time, but even my runs of bigeminy and trigeminy pretty much went away on medication. I get a yearly stress test and all have been negative with nothing unusual until now. I have noticed PVC's when exercising since late last week (just before the test). That this is different and happening only when my heart is working harder seems to be the concern.
