DomswanUser Since: Oct 2018Posts: 1need some words of wisdom or experience or just someone who is going through the same experience as me to help me. I have had ectopic beats on and off for 5 years now I am now 23. I don't smoke or drink alcohol or any caffeine and my pvcs are annoying to say the least. I have had Ecg and an echo and blood tests and all the works and everything is fine I've been told, but recently they have gotten worse where I am having more of them and they seem to be happening in episodes instead of just one or two a day! I can feel them without holding pulse and even when I'm calm and fine sometimes it just flares up how is this possible lay anxiety? Just earlier this year I had the most stressful time ever with my heart and was terrified and I didn't feel one pvc for at least a month! So how can it be anxiety if when I was at my worst I didn't get them at all? Something doesn't add up.

Also I seem to be getting random episodes where they come out of nowhere for 15 mins my. Heart will go crazy! Can anyone relate?

DevnIVUser Since: Oct 2018Posts: 4Man I feel you. I get 15-25 a minute.. One every 3rd beat. Only thing I can recommend that I have done to at least subside the feeling of them is to take 1000mg of taurine a day. 500mg in the morning or midday and one at night before bed. Also take magnesium glycinate, and eat a couple bananas a day. Hope this helps. I've been going through this for a couple years now. I know how it is, mine started from a panic attack and they felt like huge thuds like my heart stopped or something terrible. But after doing what i listed they feel like little flicks or nothing. So hope you get some relief. Also supposedly if you do some cardio and keep your heart rate 130bpm and over for 30 min a day for 6 months that can actually repair the electrical activity that is causing the pvcs. You can start seeing results at the minimum of a month. Maybe sooner. (this isn't guaranteed, everyone is different, it might work and it might not but at least give it a try, good for you no matter what) If you are already in good shape and run regularly and still get them than i dont know.

You need to take way more taurine then you are. I take most days 9 grams of taurine, but pretty much 8-10 grams every single day. Also One of the other things truly helped. I make sure to drink a large glass of low sodium v8 before bed as well. I prefer magnesium malate and I take 5 of those a day. Diet will help but the only thing that has truly made a difference is the taurine. I thought about adding in the arginine tried it few times but not much change with that. Winenuts post really holds true here I am pretty sure almost all of us low intercellar potassium, it took him 18 months. Eat Way more potassium and large doses of taurine, taurine will facilitate the cells affected and get more potassium in them. But Everyday I make sure to at least get as much potassium as I can but Taurine has been a real game changer.

DevnIVUser Since: Oct 2018Posts: 4Hi thank you for the reply! I've heard that taking more taurine as you suggested does wonders. But my question is, is taking that much taurine for long term safe? I mean I haven't found any information or studies on how it affects your body long term. How long have you been doing this?

I dont think anything other then a herbalist could tell you that. I have been doing the taurine for almost a month now. The only side affect I have noticed from doing so much is I feel more relaxed or maybe a little more tired. The study you find is the george eby study and they people some are in the 80's taking that much taurine. even this integrative cardiologist makes a simlar reccomendation https://www.wolfsonintegrativecardiology.com/taurine/.

Ill say this after 6 months of trying to do something about these things the only thing that has helped me is taurine so far. After about a week and a half they almost completely disappeared to non noticeable. But I also do many other things as well, multi vitamin, vitamin d, 5 magniesum malate a day and try to at least get as much potassium a day. If you aren't on a beta blocker it might help and if you haven't already make sure you had an ECHO done.

Ok cool I appreciate it! I'm just going to gradually go up and see what works for me. I started taking 2grams of taurine, 500mg magnesium biglycinate, and eating a few bananas for potassium a day and im seeing some results. Still getting them but not as much it feels like. Not sure i'll keep trying though. Within a week if i dont see much change i'll go up to 3 grams. I tried a betablocker and no difference. Hell i actually got more of them considering I almost always get them when i'm relaxed and my heart rate is slower. I rarely ever get them when im up and working. Hopefully can get rid of them. I'm only 20 i shouldnt be worrying about my heart like this.

Bananas didn't do anything for me. I was doing 4 a day didn't do anything. Pick up some low sodium v8 juice. No salt beans, kidney beans have the most potassium. I also eat two potatoes every mourning. But i am still on low dose beta blocker until I can get rid of these. But I know I still got work ahead of me. But yes try experiementing you might want to add in arginine as well. Look at Schaws post he has tons of pvcs and got rid of them they came back but only after he messed with supplements.
