Question: hi there! ive had PVCs for a very long time... had a holtor monitor and everything. recently they have come back strongly... usually after i stand up quickly or lay down quickly to get comfortable... or bending over... ill have a run of strong flutters/spasms/skipped beats... where my heart pounds and skips and pounds and skips. it doesnt hurt but its always startling and i never know what to do so i ususlly just stop what im doing until it passes... sometimes if i take a deep breath that will stop them. but rhey alwats stop after at most 10 or 15 seconds i think.

and they are always worse when im stressed.

does this still sound like PVCs or more like A Fib or some other arrythmia?

Brief Answer:
Need ECG to interpret, Kindly upload.

Detailed Answer:

After going through the medical details provided by you I can understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that before giving any opinion it’s important to have a look on ecg personally.

So kindly upload the image of ecg so that I can go through it once and then I will be able to comment what rhythm is going on.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap

Brief Answer:
Hello again

Detailed Answer:
As you are having symptoms recently so an Year old ecg won’t be helpful. Kindly consult your treating physician and get an ecg as well as an echocardiogram done for proper evaluation.

Also kindly get blood test done for thyroid function.
