PVCs driving me insane

I am a female, 24 years old, with 2 children ages 3, and 1. I have suffered from PVC s for about 13 years now. But, after having my last child they have gotten extremely bad. I can only sleep on my right side at night, if I move I have episodes of PVC s where it will do it every other heart beat until I get up. I ve had EKG s and a 24 hour monitor put on, and all they ve found is PVC s. Here for the last few months I ve been feeling like I need to take a deep breath all the time, and sometimes I feel like I need to yawn all the time, and I actually stop myself from yawning sometimes because it makes my heart skip. I don t eat sugar, drink caffeine, or alcohol... I m just wondering if maybe someone could talk to me that experiences these same things? Or if maybe I feel like I can t breath because of anxiety (Which I am a very anxious person!) So please help! Any way that you can?

Hi welcome to healthcareMagic

PVC(premature ventricular contraction) is caused due to production of extra impulses generated from new sites other than SA node... hence before there is actual or normal contraction , there will be premature or superimpositon of this impusle,...Direct Cardioversion is the best treatment available.. for more information and treatment you can consult a cardiologist....Hope I have answered your question..
