Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have PVC and bigeminy. I have had tests done and I do not have structural heart problems. Are alcohol and exercise harmful in case of PVC and bigeminy? Also, is it absolutely safe to exercise, if I have PVC and bigeminy during exercise and afterward as well? I take Thyroxin, but my TSH levels are under control.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Exercise is safe as you do not have any structural heart disease. Just keep observing if PVC (premature ventricular contractions) increases after exercise. Alcohol tends to increase PVC and bigeminy. So, you will need to avoid it. Also, smoking, drug abuse, and caffeine need to be avoided. Keep checking your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). It should not be very low, as excessive thyroxine can also cause this. I hope this helps you. Get back if you have any doubts.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
