Heart & Cardiology/Echo results
I am a 53 yr old healthy female that was starting to experience PVC's on a regular daily basis. EKG's normal, but caught some of the PVC's. Had an echo done and it showed "mild mitral regurgitation (normal mitral valve) and enlargement of the left atrial. Everything else was normal. Because I am "super sensitive" to every PVC (I feel them ALL) the doc put me on a very low dose of Atenolol. He said "nothing worrisome" but of course I worry anyway. Does this usually get worse? My mother has it too, but she's 80 yrs old and hers is mild as well.

As you'll read, in patients with an otherwise normal heart, PVCs are not dangerous. Your mitral valve is not an issue at this point:
Hope this helps
