How many PACs or PVCs are too many
From this I learned that you are mostly troubled by PACs, not PVCs. PACs are relatively benign arrhythmias and are not as serious as Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs) and usually require no medical care. Patients with this condition usually report feeling that their heart "stops" or misses a beat. Sometimes stress causes this, even if there is no immediately apparent source of stress. Since they are obviously bothering you, you should discuss the option of starting medications with your cardiologist, such as beta blockers that can reduce their frequency.
