ecsmithUser Since: Dec 2013Posts: 2Hello - new to this forum here. I've had PVCs for the last 4 months or so. I am a 38 yo healthy fitness instructor. I've had an EKG, 24 hr Holter Monitor, echocardiogram and blood work (all normal, although they did detect a lot of PVCs, a slightly enlarged heart & I have a mild murmur). Was basically told to live with it or do self-studies. Thanks, doc!

I know that they are definitely made worse with alcohol so I've cut that out (except for special occasions and I ALWAYS pay for my indulgence). I've also tried cutting out sugar to no avail. I don't think caffeine is a huge problem, as I only drink two cups per day, in the AM, and my PVS are usually the worst at night. I do get them after I work out but they don't bother me while I'm working out. I've also considered the possibility that I workout out too much (mainly cardio) because I teach 7 60 min. fitness cl***** per week. I do have asthma (although it was NOT the meds causing the PVCs) and I do get occasional heartburn that subsides with Tums.

Anyway, long story short...even though my blood work all came back normal, I'm thinking about trying magnesium supplements. (I've tried increasing my electrolytes and that didn't help). If magnesium doesn't work, I'll try the apple cider vinegar but I'm not sure I can stomach it.

Can anyone suggest magnesium supplements? Also, has anyone else had "normal" blood work but later found taking supplements worked?

I would recommend magnesium as a lot of people have found relief using it even if their blood work comes back normal!
I tried it once and it worked for a while, then unfortunately the pvc's came back!
I'm now trying Taurine, which i have to say has helped me slightly! Ive been taking it for a couple of months and have noticed a slight decrease in pvc's! But as you probably already know these things can come and go without any rhyme or reason! They really are a mystery!!
Last night my pvc's were acting up at every 3 beats...that went on for 2 hours, but upon waking they were gone!! And I've not had any all day! I usually have 1-2 per minute! I really don't get it!
What were your holter monitor results??
I've had 2 holter monitors done, my first one showed up 1200 pvc's in 24 hours, and I'm waiting for the results for my latest one!!

Anyway I would try the magnesium to see if it helps! But dont take magnesium oxide as it don't really absorb into the body that well!
Magnesium oratate is the best one! (Not sure if i spelt that right)

Take care

M S B :-)
