PVCs

Hi, my name is Bill and I am a 74 year old white male currently living in York, Maine. I been monitored for heart valve issues for the last 4 or 5 years. Recently I became more lightheaded more often and the heart rate on my home blood pressure machine went a lot lower. I did a stress test, wore a 24 hour heart monitor, and had a Lexi-scan, none of which indicated a significant problem other than PVCs. I had 27,000 PVCs over a 24 hour period. I have been told they are benign, but I've been struggling with increased instances of lightheadedness, anxiety and shortness of breath. I have also been tired a lot and lethargic. I've done some breathing exercises and meditation. They seem to  help a little, but is there anything more I can do?  Has anyone had success with anxiety reducing medications?

    Good morning and welcome to the Support Network. Anxiety is a topic that runs across all of the forums and definitely something to talk with your doctor about. We also have information on Mental Health and Well-being as it is such a large component of your life. Please know that you are not alone and we are glad to have you here with us. Best Katie
