I definitely think all PVC suffers should have blood work done to see what they are deficient in (if anything).
Let us know how you get on.

mikenrosieUser Since: Sep 2012Posts: 1I have had PAC's for about 15 years now. They come and they go. Now I have PVC's and PAC's. I went to the emergency room the forst time I experienced them, and I was referred to a Cardiologist. I went to three different cardiologist and had all of the tests before I accepted that what they were saying was true. As I type I am experiencing them. They are scary and bother me alot. Most of the year they are absent but when I get a lot of stress they come back and stay with me for a few months; even after the stress is gone. What I have learned is that the Beta blockers don't work and the side affects from the drugs may be worse for you. My cardiologist does not like to prescribe beta blockers.

PVCManUser Since: Oct 2009Posts: 228Hi mikenrosie,

I think your cardiologist is absolutely right about beta-blockers. I have never taken them, but based on the research I have done, the general sentiment is that they cause a lot more problems than they cure.

I have found myself that episodes of PVCs often persist for some time after any event that may have triggered them.

I have fundamentally beaten my PVCs now which I firmly believe was down to a combination of several factors including bad diet and loads of heartburn. Once I found the solution, it took 2-3 months before I noticed significant improvements. So it could be that although stress exacerbates PVCs, they may not be the underlying cause.

For me, once I sorted out my digestive disorders, the PVCs gradually disappeared. I am pretty certain it was down to electrolyte imbalances caused by malnutrition. I have read (and re-written information on this site using my experience) about how electrolytes such as magnesium are difficult to absorb without good digestion. For me, this was the root of the whole problem.

I hope you find some relief soon. I know exactly how horrible these things are!

mariahUser Since: Nov 2012Posts: 4Hi, I'm new here, but thought I would reply to this post. One thing I've never seen mention of is the fact that eating not only stimulates the vagus nerve,(often thought to cause arrhythmia,) but increases bloodsugar as well. I too get arrhythmia after I eat and have wondered of a spike in blood glucose might cause them? Just a thought...

PVCManUser Since: Oct 2009Posts: 228Hi Mariah,

I belive you are right. I have heard quite a lot recently about the vagus nerve. ( For a while I thought it had something to do with gambling in the states, but then realised it is spelt different).

I think it's beyond any shadow of a doubt that eating and arhythmias go hand-in-hand.

I am currently in the process of re-desiging this site and plan to incorporate a profiling mechanism which could better illustrate things like this.

mariahUser Since: Nov 2012Posts: 4I think a profiling mechanism is an awesome idea. Hopefully we might see some kind of pattern emerge!

PVCManUser Since: Oct 2009Posts: 228That's right. I think it's this profiling and associated patterns are what we are all missing.

I don't think the pattern will be the same for everyone which is all the more reason why we need it. the hope is to drive new ideas and help reduce the ambiguity of the condition.

For me it appeared to be largely about malabsorption, but this no doubt still shares a relationship with the vagus nerve.
