PVC's and exercise
Jul 16th, 2013, 10:32am
 
Hi everyone!
I'm new to this forum, and I'm so glad to have found such great info regarding issues w/ PVC's. I've been suffering from them for almost 20 years now, and like many of you, they come and go with no rhyme or reason. I saw a cardiologist 8 years ago- I had an EKG and cardiac cath done, and I was told my heart was healthy. Of course, as time goes by, I always consider going back for a visit.. just in case things have changed! Roll Eyes The anxiety related to these extra beats is so unnerving... but moving on...

My question is: Does anyone here get more PVC's during and/or after a workout session? I find that every time I get into a workout routine, my PVC's become more intense. I find that during my workout, if PVC's start, my workout stops due to anxiety of a strained heart, and I get so frustrated because I genuinely want to work out on a regular basis! Should I just ignore the PVC's and continue my workout? BTW, cardiologist gave me the "all clear" to work out 8 years ago, but it would be nice to get some pointers from PVC sufferers that understand what this feels like.

Thanks for any advice!

Nettie

Nettie welcome to the forum.....if you go back and read some post from RLR you will see many times that he states that if you have been given the ALL CLEAR and had the test then you are fine and suffering from Benign Palps.....you can exercise all you want.  You are alerting your nervous system to a danger that just doesnt exist so until you prove 100% to your subconscious that there is no reason to be afraid of these palps then you will continue to experience them and be afraid of them.....you have had them for 20 years and what, other then your worry and anxiety, have you suffered from.  Go out and live your life and have fun!  Read through this site and understand that there is no risk from these palps.

I hope this helps!

Hi Nettie

8 yrs ago is a bit long.
Its not uncommon to have palps after and also during exercising.

If you feel unsure and it is 8 yrs ago, why not schedule a stress test?
Not because i think there is something wrong, but it can give you the peace of mind to keep exercising which is good.

note. I'm no MD or GP.. And exercising is good when you build this up slowly and gradually and not exert yourself too much. Keep hydrated as well and never ever exercise  with some fever.
