ctcsmithUser Since: Oct 2013Posts: 5Hi I'm a 28 yr old female!! About 4 yrs ago the skips started!! I was just starting fertility treatments to try and get pregnant with my second child!
It was terrifing! Went to cardiologist everything was fine... just PACS! I finally got pregnant and during that pregnancy they were HORRIBLE!!! LOTS OF PACS and a holter that showed a 4 beat run of NSVT! To me that was a death sentence! I had my son hoping the arrythmias would get better and they did but they are still here!!!
Each month that I get my period I will get more and more pacs/pvcs and a run of NSVT! It scares me to death! I just started slow mag last night and hoping this is my magic pill!!! How long did it take till ppl notice a change?

Thanks!

I hear people report different results in time-frames when taking supplements, it seems everyine is different, or maybe everyone's deficiency is different.

One interesting post made a couple of days ago might be worth reading. Specifically, the poster found that small doses of supplements taken more often were more effective.

This does make sense, because it seems electrolytes such as magnesium seem to be slowly absorbed and if taken too much at one time, they may pass through the body without being properly absorbed.

Keep us up to date with your progress.

Yes I get NSVT...I had a 4 beat run documented on my heart monitor!!
I get 1-2 pvc's per minute all day,but during my period I will get them every other beat and also have runs of NSVT!!
I'm going to see my cardio in November and I'm gonna ask if hormones play a part!! I strongly believe they do!! :-)

ctcsmithUser Since: Oct 2013Posts: 5My dr told me there is a for sure connection between the two.. she told me to A) try a birth control pill (NO WAY) B) try a beta blocker (did that when this all first started and it made me feel horrid.. couldn't get out of bed!) or C) Nothing! That is what I'm doing right now.. yesterday I just started taking slow mag! I hope it helps!

Can your cardio refer you to an EP for maybe an ablation since you are getting so much?

miss spice bombUser Since: Jun 2013Posts: 47Hi again :-)
I tried magnesium once but it didn't work for me!
I'm trying Taurine at the moment with my medication called citalopram, I needed something to keep me more calm because I would fly into a panic on numerous occasions!!
Even though I get a lot I don't even qualify for an ablation! I think you have to have over 20.000 in one day to even be considered!
With my normal 1-2 per minute I never feel horrible,it just makes me anxious as I don't like the sensation!
I can still function and have lots of energy!
I was given beta blockers but my resting pulse can get as low as 48bpm so that wouldn't be good for me!
Do you get lots??
