Hello, I've been diagnosed by a cardiologist as having PVCs. I've had them for nearly 6 years. They come and go at random, some are "big", some are small, some feel like my heart is fluttering, some feel like my heart "pauses" and then beats. My cardiologist and general practitioner insist my PVCs are benign and although it feels frightening and like my heart is going to stop, that it won't.

My question is, what exactly is happening with the heart electrically or anatomically when a PVC occurs and why is this benign and nothing to worry about?

Thank you so much!
