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.
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.
