Question
Hi. I am 39 female.  History of hashimoto thyroid and MVP +1 regurgitation.  I am no stranger to pvc but llately I get sensation like a fish is jumping in my chest more often recently had blood tests all good no cholesterol no triglycerides 72 hdl except tsh which was 0.710 ( 0.30-4.50) and fasting sugar 110 mgr.  Hbc1 was 5. Could my low tsh is the reason of my pvcs?   I am on holiday so will visit my endo on return.  I also have high anxiety . BP 10.5/6.5 pulse 70"s. Don't drink or smoke 1.65 / 70 kgs

Answer
Hi, http://myheart.net/articles/pvc-heart-beats-are-they-dangerous/

The TSH is in the normal range which suggests your treatment is appropriate. If it was much lower than that then yes is could possibly be related. Some people have regular PVC and don't notice them and others can have them rarely but be very sensitive to them. Anxiety certainly plays a component.

Hope that was helpful,
