I've had around 15,000+ PVCs a day for over 25 years and I am 65. MANY of them are bigeminy. I've had multiple cardiac scans done over the years and NOT A SINGLE change in heart structure. In fact, I have a zero calcium score. My EP study came back multifocal and the EP was reluctant to discuss ablation. I did not want to chase something without definite answers, so not ablation for me. I have learned to live with them and plan to for the next 30 years (my parents are in their 90s). When I go into bigeminy I will just take a break from what I am doing OR start exercising which ALWAYS eliminates my PVCs.
SO, to answer your question, I am a perfect example of someone with a high burden but ZERO changes in heart structure. You will be fine.
I had similar PVCs. Got rid of them using L-arginine, L-carnitine (fumarate seems to work better than tartrate), and taurine. 500mg of each per day. PVCs lessening at 2 weeks, gone in 4 weeks. Tried all kinds of stuff previously that was of little or no help or made them worse.
Hi, I too have lots of PVCs (and Long QT, tachycardia, etc.). Try lying on your right side when sleeping - that helps my PVCs. Avoid lying on your left side. Also, when you feel your PVCs, try coughing hard to 'reset" your heart. That often helps mine. Has your doctor tried any meds like Metoprolol or Bystolic? They both helped my PVCs, especially when I take it with a Super C vitamin that includes Vitamin D and zinc. I know how frustrating and scary they are, so I hope you can find some relief soon. Take care.
Hello Richard. I was at the same level of pvc burden, with many times they were bigeminy (every other beat) which made me feel dizzy sweaty and nauseous.
I would see an excellent electrophysiology cardiologist. Look for their ratings. Make sure they are affiliated with a good hospital.
He/she may recommend doing a cardiac ablation to reduce the PVCs. I’ve had 2 ablations, the second one just a month ago and I’m starting to feel a positive difference (it often takes months to feel the full effect so patience is needed).
Hope that helps!
Here is a video that might help y'all. It sure has me and makes perfect sense.
I purchased a portable EMAY ECG monitor. It's very accurate in picking up the number of PVCs I have in a 30 sec. time period. It seems to correspond to my cardiologist's EKG that she does during my visit, so she doesn't disregard any of the EMAY reports I bring to her. I keep the monitor nearby I check myself periodically throughout the day. I currently have more than 30,000/day, so monitoring is a must.
