Brief Answer:
Seems a cardiac problem.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problems it seems to be of cardiac origin . Since you say you are having PVC , sometimes they may lead to arrythmias which may give these symptoms .

I would advise you to have a holter monitoring and 2 D ECHO for your complete cardiac evaluation .

Wish you a good health.

Take care.

Brief Answer:
Hypertension can be the culprit

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thanks for reverting back.

Well then it can be hypertensipon . Sometimes sudden rise in Blood pressure may lead to such symptoms.Make sure it is well controlled.

Otherwise get your Thyroid status , Vitamin D , Calcium levels checked. Just by these symptoms it will be difficult for me to pin point a diagnosis . Only possibilities can be discussed.
