I am a 39 year old male. My height is about 6 feet, and weight is 170 lbs. I do not drink, but do smoke a pack of cigarette a day. My problem is PVCs. About eight years ago, I went to the ER because it felt like my heart was skipping every other beat. All test came back fine. I followed up with a cardiologist, and he found out that I was hypothyroid. Anyway, I have been mostly symptom-free since then. I will feel the occasional PVC, but nothing like that day I went to the ER where they were non-stop. That was until today. Today, they have been on and off all day. I am anxious, and I am about to have a heart attack or something. I went for my regular 2 miles evening walk, and they did not get any worse while walking. Should I go back to the ER?

Do you think this is an emergency that requires me to go to the emergency room now? All my heart test came out normal last time (8 years ago). I just recently had my TSH tested, and I was very hypo again. So, the doctor increased my Levothyroxine dose from 100 to 125 mcg. I do not drink any caffeine or alcohol. I know I need to stop smoking. Other than that, I stick to a very strict diet due to IBS. Mostly, I eat white rice, baked chicken breast, drink only water and lots of 100% grape juice. Could hypothyroid cause this?
