I have been diagnosed with benign bigeminy PVCs which started about 3 months ago. I have had a holter, echo, stress test, blood work, and chest X-ray which all came out normal. Holter picked up 600 PVCs. I think they might be up to 5,000 now judging from when I check my pulse they always occur.
I am very symptomatic, I have shortness of breath, lightheadedness, and fatigue almost constantly. It affects my quality of life extremely. From what I’ve seen most people do not have these symptoms when they have their PVCs. Am I the only one?
My cardiologist put me on atenolol which somewhat helped but it made me sooooooo tired I had to stop. He told me that SOB is common with PVCs and nobody seems concerned.
Everyone thinks it’s anxiety so I’m going down that path. I feel so alone because no one seems to have symptoms besides being nervous about the feeling of the PVCs themselves.
Please let me know your thoughts
