slowhbwpvcsUser Since: Jan 2019Posts: 1So I'm 60 and this just started for me about a month and a half ago although I suspect I was not feeling things going wrong for some time before that as I was pretty weak and tired and anxious - I didn't know anxiety can be a trigger and I have noticed that I was feeling more fear and anxiety than I used to lately so I will try remedies for that.

At first, I cut my caffeine in half and it got better for about a week and a half. But it came back. I am going to quit smoking because I am pretty much down to only a few a day and I smoke half of these small cigars with a filter and don't inhale so it's more or less physiological rather than addicted to nicotine. I continue to improve my diet and see today that too much sugar can be bad. I like sweets but I bake myself so I know how much goes into what I am eating. I only use half or less sugar in each recipe and they still come out yummy. I also never use salt when cooking and rarely at the table. I keep adding more and more vegetables and fruits as well as whole grains. I cut out all white bread and rice and potatoes as much as I can.

Do most people have a normal heart beat range with pvcs. I have a very slow heart beat and my blood pressure goes up. My heart rate can go down to low 40s. I feel lightheaded and woozy and drained of energy. I would try to exercise but it seems that my heart rate stays low even when I try to exercise. I have some relief some days it seems normal for a period of time and I feel great. I may try a procedure to eliminate the pvcs from happening. I see my doctor this Friday. I'd rather not be on medicine but appreciate as well the nutritional ideas which I might try first. I just don't want to overdo and my pressure goes low. My heart rate can't get any lower!

I am going to try the potassium gluconate - I just stared with 1 a day but will increase to 2 per day. Does anyone think I should try to move and exercise more when I am in PVCs or only when I'm not. And is there a difference in the levels of supplements when the heart rate is low?

Experementing on yourself with supplements like potassium is dangerous if your heart rate is already so low.

We have doctors for a reason people.
