I am here to help you with your concerns.
PVCs can be caused by the other causes like potassium and magnesium deficiency.
Hyperthyroidism is another possibility.
Hypercalcemia or excess calcium is another possibility.
These possibilities can be checked by the blood tests.
Potassium and magnesium supplements can be used commonly.
Besides these conditions, the problem likely lies in your heart due to the abnormal conduction pathways or abnormal focus of impulse generation.
Electrophysiology tests can identify these abnormal areas and may be considered for ablation.
They ran enzymes and potassium, nothing wrong, thyroid is fine too
then this is likely heart related.
how about stomach
can it cause this
unlikely --sometimes acid reflux and gas problem can cause this.
I always experience a lot of gas, and heartburn occasionally and there is the issue when I always find myself pulling abdomen in that increases them. Can this kind of pull somehow misaligned something?
these problems can be addressed with diet modification, PPI like omeprazole and simethicone.
No abdominal pull will not affect the heart position.
But gas and reflux can cause pvc's as well.
The relation between pull and skipped beat is always there, however.
Am I too young for ablation? Also, is atenolol better than diltiazem for PVC?
sometimes switching to atenolol or another betablocker called sotalol can be successful.
There is no age restriction for ablation.
The indication of ablation is there when medications fail.
How dangerous is this ablation, really?
Usually a very safe procedure.
The complications can be bleeding, infection, puncture to the heart, blood clot
but the risk is around 1%
That is low but still a mess. Am I going to need drugs after this? Plus I am reading may cause other arrhythmias after procedure
yes that is a possibility and also very low risk however.
Medications are not needed after successful ablation procedure.
Ok, it seems I have to flip a coin and hope for the best. Thanks for the answers
the odds are better than flipping the coin however.
And in most cases, we see successful resolution after ablation (over 90% cases).
