Brett FrableUser Since: Apr 2017Posts: 2I have had PVCS my whole life. I can go years without them, then they resurface.

On January 31st I had a few beers. Nothing extreme. Went to bed and woke up covered in sweat all night. Figured I was catching a virus.

Next day I felt okay, later on in the day felt awful again. Went to the urgent care. Told it was probably viral. Went home, went to bed that night, woke up in the middle of the night shaking cold covered in sweat, I mean soaked. Took a hot hot hot shower to try to warm myself up. After the shower, my heart started to sputter like never before. I could tell this was different than just PVCs. After about a minute of this feeling I called 911. Ambulance came, and I was have repetitive runs of non sustained v tach. Injected with lidocaine and immediately after passed out.

I was admitted into the cardiac ICU for a couple days. All the test came back normal. Stress, echo, MRI, cat scan, blood work.

Was ruled benign and discharged. Fast forward a month and I am driving. Feel my heart do a hard thud then jump around. Fortunately was wearing a holter monitor and was told by my doctor I had a slow 8 beat run of v tach, AGAIN.

Again, he says this is benign. Beta blocker is optional. I opt NOT TO because I hate taking medicine.

FYI, my doctor is a well established and intelligent EP with 25 years experience.

Since January 1st I've been struggling with PVCs all the time. I'll have a couple good weeks then a couple bad weeks. I've been in a couple bad weeks right now and I'm not sure what to do anymore.

Should I take a beta blocker? I'm scared. This has taken over my life. My anxiety is through the roof over everything. I always think everyday is my last. I'm scared to leave the house. I'm scared to go to work. I'm scared to have sex. My life is falling apart. I just want a cure. I don't want a treatment.

If anyone can help me, please help.

My cardiologist has me on metoprolol, 25 mg twice a day. I just started about 3 weeks ago. What are you on and how long does it take to stop the PVCs. I am having PVCs over 50% of the time.

Jd6019User Since: Jul 2018Posts: 2I had a similar experience last year. I tried many options. Luckily I stumbled on a great cardiologist who put me on Bystolic. It’s a good beta blocker that is selective for cardiac beta receptors. So it won’t cause ED or other issues that other beta blockers do. Anyway, the thing that helped me most was 100mg CoQ10 per day. Try it. Everyone is different so it may do nothing but definitely worth trying. I feel 100% better on cow10. I can even drink alcohol and eat chocolate now with no problems!

You take the CoQ10 with the beta blocker with no issues? What dosage of the beta blocker are you taking and do you take an extended release or?
