    Irregular heart rate

    I have a history of pvc’s that are problematic at times but tolerable. Over the past month or 2 I have had 3 episodes of feeling a little off and then my heart rate will become very irregular.

I had a stress test a couple of years ago when the pvc’s started and that was fine. Is this something to worry about?
