Diagnosed with premature ventricular beats. Is it due to sports?

20 years old, 138 lbs. No previous heart conditions in family. I was diagnosed with premature ventricular beats probably three years or so ago. Doc said they were harmless and I do not feel them so much on a daily basis. However, I went go-kart racing yesterday and while on the track (when bouncing up and down in the go-kart), I starting getting a bunch of these premature ventricular beats. They did settle down afterwards, but it did concern me.

Cardiologist, Interventional 's  Response
Hello & Welcome

In some cases premature ventricular beats may be asymptomatic but needs to be treated. We can not keep it as it is. You should under go all the investigation including EP study if needed. It usually dosn't happened due to sports. There may be some other reasons. So consult cardiologist.

Thanx for your query
Wish you healthy heart
