PVCs are rarely dangerous. Almost everyone has them from time to time. They can be caused by stress, infection, or overuse of caffiene or other stimulants. PVCs may also… be an early warning of other problems such as a thyroid disorder or heart disease. Something to try to be aware of is if the PVCs are perfusing or nonperusing, that is do you have a pulse with these irregular beats? As long as the beats are perfusing there is no risk of your blood pressure being lowered by these missed or irregular beats.
