what else are you taking in terms of medication?
Did you see that I'm taking Cymbalta, Synthroid and 1/4 clonazepam ?
Well, PVCs are commonly associated with cough, and even fainting
It is believed that pulmonary trunk distension may trigger cough reflex by stimulating sympathetic innervation in RVOT or pulmonary artery. Although an increase in peak flow velocity in RVOT associated with PVCs was significant in the present study, it might have caused only a low increase in pressure in the pulmonary trunk. The cough reflex is initiated by irritating cough receptors primarily localised in the epithelium of the upper and lower respiratory tract.
basically the arrhythmia triggers a change in blood flow which then triggers a cough reflex
actually in people with chronic cough, checking them for PVCs is an important part of diagnosis
cough reflex based upon the info you gave me in previous response?
No, I mean, interesting..
So....there's nothing to worry about?
I think that it is interesting how a change in your heart beat can cause a change in blood flow enough to cause cough
well, nothing to worry about
so, getting the pvcs under control is your priority
yo're so right
unless it is really not bothering you that much
it does bother me...esp. when I try to have any conversation which is
emotionally "charged" for me
such as even having this current "conversation"
are u there?
sorry I had to stretch my legs
Sorry, I had not read the green accept button info. So far, I'm "accepting."
well, when you are stressed about something, it makes your adrenaline flow and your pvcs
do you drink alcohol
Do you think adrenal supplements arehelpful? no I don't drink alky
I mean, you have too MUCH adrenaline
what would help you, is relaxation techniques
we have already identified that when you get emotionally charged, it stresses you and makes the symptoms worse
doing something like yoga, breathing, tai chi really helps
I do martial arts and it clears my mind and helps me focus
typical recommendations....I agree with them
seems I would have to spend my entire life doing those things to calm down
well, for the time being maybe
as you get more relaxed, your body will zen out faster
these are typical recommendations, because they work
as well acupuncture and acupressure is good
oh, yes....have recently had acupuncture for 2 extreme headaches
has it helped?
which were caused by the 30 extra mgs. of Cym.
you can talk to your acupuncturist about placing the needles to release stress too
Thanks for your responses...much better process than attempting to get
contact with the cardiologist !!
you are welcome !
Will do the acupun doctor and get a tai chai dvd......
