My doctor said i might have Ventricular Tachycardia

does anyone else know more about this? he didnt say much of it other than it occurs in the lower chambers and explained my heart palpitations and he is doing more test in a few weeks..but could it turn serious? or is it something i can live with and not have to worry about it? sorry he said premature Ventricular tachycardia..idk if that makes a big difference and he told me i had low thyroid levels

they will need to level out your thyroid levels and probably start you on synthroid medication as well as medication to contol your heart rate. Ventricular Tachycardia could beome life threatening if sustained. If medications do not control your episodes you might be a canidate for a ICD (shock box) to zap you out of those deadly rhythms.
