Hi, thanks for your message.
Can I please ask, I'm worried that this is ventricular tachycardia and a life threatening condition.
I have suffered from PVC's and unexplained episodes of sinus tachycardia with lightheadednress for approx 4 years. I'm a non smoker non drinker but am obese. I would like to exercise but am very concerned about the episodes.
Can I please ask what you mean by everything else being normal? I have had a normal Echo and a negative tilt table test.
Thanks for your help?

That is enough for me. This isn't V tach. PVCs are common

I know PVCs are common but when they are in a row is this not an episode of NSVT? Can this lead to v tach?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Not necessarily. It is a run of PVCs. Very different If you were really worried you could take a beta blocker to suppress them
