Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Hello, Thank you for your question. I will try my best to help you with your questions. I need to ask few questions before first.
I do not think he has treated you properly if he has not advised or ordered tests like holter monitoring.
If this test is done then we can easily assess the need of treatment.
it can show us fast or slow or missed beats. and their frequency
So it is mandatory that your doctor does this test.
Let me know if you have questions.
is it likely to be a serious problem I can tell myself if I am having them and most of the time it is fine
Well if you have these symptoms more frequently associated with chest pain, dizziness and blackouts then this is a serious issue.
Otherwise in most cases this is not serious and holter test can help us in assessing the severity of the problem,
I don't have any other symptoms and it has just been for a week between the
the hours of 12 pm and 4 pm
It is best to get holter test
as it can assess the severity of the issue
whether only PVC are there
or run of arrythmias is also there.
With help of this simple test
we can tell which medicine at what dose to be used.
what is pvc please the doctor said he would not put me on the same pills as my dad as I am to young can drinking beer cause this
premature ventricular contractions
i do not think your doctor is correct
you need holter test before
any medicine can be used.
how can I get this test done
you have to force your GP for referral to a cardiologist.
because most Gps make it an anxiety issue
which is one of the cause of such symptoms.
but of these symptoms last for so many hours like in your case
then these have to be evaluated with holter.
ok thankyou I will see how it goes and if it carries on I will go back to him
you are welcome.
Have a nice day.
