When Are New PVCs Dangerous?
The cardiac tests are done to find out whether you have coronary artery or other heart disease, the most important factors to exclude when new onset PVCs occur. They include blood tests, an echocardiogram and often a cardiac stress test.
If you don't have significant underlying coronary artery disease, your PVCs are probably not dangerous. If the tests show youi have coronary artery disease, you should be treated as the new PVCs indicate you have a heart problem. Women often have atypical symptoms compared to men.
Your blood pressure is now normal, not "very low". Blood pressures medications should be used together with a heart healthy lifestyle; Propanolol is very safe to use and you are treated with a very low dose. Don't stop!
Hope this helps,
