Heart & Cardiology/PVCs

Question
I had an echo/stress test and wore a holter monitor. Doctor said HR monitor showed rare PACs and rare PVCs with no reported symptoms associated with them. The past two months I've noticed an increase in the number of PVCs as well as their strength. Varying the intensities sets pff my anxiet and don't know if I should be reevaluated. Do you think I should? Eco showed mild  mitral  and tricuspid valve regurgitation. Stress test said there were inverted Q waves. I'm  26 y/o, not overweight, generally healthy,  I feel frustrated  how these cardiac events have me in a constant state of panic. Can you please either reassure me or help me with what my next step should be.

The tests you've had show your pvcs are benign and not to worry about.
Hope this helps,
