PVC runs, are they cause for concern?

Just Wondering, today i felt a flip flop in my chest for a good 2 seconds, by the time i got to my pulse, i did feel a pause, but i could not tell if there was a regular beat in there or not. But i had no other symptoms. No light headed ness or dizzyness or anything. Any cause for concern?

fyi, i am on meds, verapamil 240mg a day, which has brought my pvc's down from 6600 to 10~100 a day. I usually get these flip flops once a week, but it would never be more than one. So im doubting if it was 2 in a row or not

Re: PVC runs, are they cause for concern?

You know, I have those espicially during exercise and I ignore then and I workout a lot. I do not take meds but honestly I'm hoping and assuming they are benign. As much as I workout I would be in trouble! I had AVNRT (atrial ventriculur nodal re-entrant tachycardia) for my whole life until the end of February 2010 when I had an ablation and it has worked (woohoo). But the electrophysiologists told me I would still have the PAC/PVC's and to just ignore them so I do. They used to oftentimes turn into a heart rate of 180 - 240. I've had so many of those in my lifetime and I managed to get to 52 and be pretty healthy so sometimes I think worrying about them is worse than just ignoring them. I get mine a lot more than once a week! Sometimes when working out I get them a number of times. If they continued on for longer than a few seconds I would worry but they don't and I ignore them and keep going. If I keep getting them sometimes I slow down the workout a bit but I never stop! So, at my age if I can workout and get them and do fine you should be good to go!
