Question: 
Dear sir,I had a heart echo, multiple ecg’s, a stress ecg and an x-ray in January 2009 due to discovering multiple PVCs. I have been told they are benign, but they have not gone away. I am concerned as to whether or not this could lead to cardiomyopathy in later life.
The only time I am aware of the PVCs is when I physically take my pulse, and they occur every 8/10 beats. This is different to when I was first aware of them, whereby I could feel them shake my chest. Thank you for any information you can provide.
