Over a six month period I developed a fast growing liquid filled cyst on my thyroid. During this process I also started getting the PVCs. At first very sporadic. Since then I had a partial thyroidectomy. Everything appears to have healed ok, except my pvcs seems to have gotten way more persistent. Wondering if this is stress related or thyroid related or something entirely different.

Due to some past heart issues I am currently taking the following meds: amlodipine besylate, clopidogrel,metoprolol succ, and rosuvastatin.

Any suggestions or thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to e health forum.

The PVCs can be a presentation of hyperthyrodism as well.

Get your thyroid function tests (T3, T4, TSH ) checked out .

If your cardiologist has done a ECG and a echocardiogram, and it is found to be ok, then updating the dose of your medication might be helpful.

Consult your doctor for the same.
