PVCs while playing sports, exercising. EKG, stress test normal. Cause of concern?

I am a 19 year old male great health, athlete, don t smoke etc. I have been to a 14 year experience cardiologist and had an ekg done and a stress test(11 minutes on treadmill) and all results came out perfect. However when I play sports or exercise I get PVCs, usually after the exercise is done and at times during the exercise. Are these normal and should I be worried.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I'm not sure what you are referring to by "PVCs". Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs) are a specific EKG finding and cannot be made out just by experiencing any symptoms. I presume that you are referring to palpitations or irregular beats that you are experiencing when you exercise.

Since your EKG as well as a Stress test (Treadmill test) are normal and you have been checked by an experienced Cardiologist, you don't have to worry about this. A raise in heart rate, which can be perceived as palpitations or prominent beats is normal after exercise or any strenuous work. Sometimes these noticeable or prominent heartbeats could also due to anxiety. So, I don't think you have to worry about this.

Wish you all the best.
