Hi I have been having some chest pain that onsets in the evenings. I saw a cardiologist about it and they said I have some benign PVC's going on that can cause some discomfort for me for a few brief seconds. It isn't every night but now and then especially after just lying down I will get an arrythmia feeling and then some brief chest pain but it goes away quickly. It usually only happens 1-2 times a night and that's it. Is there anything I can do to help this? It's not really of any concern it's just annoying after it happens so frequently.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

I would advise a follow up visit with the cardiologist to suggest a 24 hour holter and a stress test if possible. SVT should be looked for in the EKG during the tachycardia episodes. Beta blockers and other anti arrhytmic medications can be then decided upon accordingly.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
