Alone with Palpitations and PVCs
If you live a "relatively stress free life", I don't know what stress is. Of course you are scared, and being alone must make it so much worse! The best I can do for you is to show that, most likely, you are quite safe from a cardiac point of view. If all your tests came back as normal only a year ago, it is VERY unlikely that your rhythm has suddenly become dangerous.
The things you were tested for last year should have included blood tests, an EKG, probably a Holter monitor test and a Cardiac ECHO. If they all came back normal you should be quite safe. The things you can do meanwhile to help lessen the frequency of these PVCs include avoiding caffeine, nicotine and other toxins.
Please check these links for more information about palpitations and PVCs:
You’ll find these are rather common complaints and most people don’t need treatment, only reassurance once their heart proves OK. In your daughter’s case, she needs more testing, both of her Thyroid gland and her heart rhythm.
Read these, get those tests done and come back if you still have questions for me,
Hope this helps,
