This isn't a question but more of a post.
I am 43. I have had PVCs since I was in college. I played basket in college and discovered them during a game.
Testing showed I was ok.
As with everyone they eventually became more consistent.
About 5 years ago they became daily with rare breaks.
I met with multiple cardiologists and two EPs. Every test imaginable short of a cardiac cath.
2 stress tests
1 thallium stress test with angiography
1 stress echo
1 cardiac mri
More ekgs I can count
At least 5 er visits
EP dr is phenomenal. His name is Amit Thosani and is from Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh.
My PVCs are benign.
He was aware of this but offered to help.
Tried Atenolol. Worked sporadically but were off too quick.
Scheduled me for an EP study/ablation. 1 day before ablation PVCs stopped.
On the EP table he gave me adrenaline. PVCs started but he said he didnt think we should go through with procedure as they weren't frequent enough.
Tried Metoprolol Succinate. Worked for about 3 weeks maybe? PVCs kind of came back as expected
Offered me Flecainide. Said it would help a lot and since Ove had so many tests, no danger to me.
I filled the prescription and it is still sitting on my shelf 6 days later.
Two days ago I was at my wits end and remembered that back in 2003 I read abo8t that Taurine/Arginine study.
In 2003 I bought Taurine tablets at GNC and three days later the PVCs stopped pretty much for good. Coincidence? Maybe.
2 days ago I started Taurine powder twice per days. 3000mg total.
The day I started the PVCs were less forceful. Hard to explain
Two days late they've all but stopped.
For those like me who are looking to try anything.
It's worth a shot.
I make no guarantees other than it's worked twice for me.
It may stop working for me in two days who knows.
From what I've been reading about Taurine, it makes sense why it might work.
I bought my powder off of Amazon. I'm not going to say the brand because I dont want it to seen like I'm pushing a product because I'm not.
These PVCs have all but wrecked me inside. On the outside you wouldn't know. Inside..no different ballgame.
Feels good when they go away
