Premature Ventricular Contractions Due To Emotions/hormones?

Feb 4, 2015

I have had blood work and an EKG that determined I have nothing of concern (spoken to a number of doctors...)

But when I get scared/nervous/highly stressed out, I feel like a fish is flopping in my chest! They don't really last long and they don't occur every single time I am experience high emotions (but often), I get maybe 3-4 in a row at worst (beat, beat, skip, beat, beat, skip, ...etc). I have had a doc listen to it when I was very nervous during an appointment and she blew it off as changes in my blood pressure as I became nervous and adrenalin. When I relax, they go away.

Of course, sometimes the cycle goes: Nervousness, pvcs, more nervous because of pvcs, more pvcs...

I have also noticed during ovulation they occur and during menstruation, particularly when I am resting. I have also found other triggers like drinking alcohol (big huge no-no!), too much caffeine, being overtired, and too much carbs. I also noticed sometimes certain positions can create them (again, sometimes but not always), shifting my position makes them go away during those times.
Side note: I have never felt lightheaded, breathless, or any pain during these occurrences. Also, I do have an anxiety disorder but not on any meds by choice (trying to get pregnant).

My question is, what can I do besides avoiding triggers to ease them? I am afraid that if I get SUPER scared or whatever my heart will just stop (ok, that's exaggerated.. but still they are scary..)!

Premature Ventricular Contractions - Can't Sleep At Night

I'm a 40 year old female who has dealt with palpitations and set my whole life. I had a successful catheter ablation back in 1999. I have always had a run of pvcs from time to time, but this time for about 6 months or so, they are constant. I even have runs of pvcs that will last literally 30 seconds only to straighten out for a second, and start up again. I can't sleep at night, because they are constant. I am miserable just waiting on them to pop back up. I work a full time high stress job. Not sure how much more I can take.

Personality Disorders :: Don't Feel Emotions When I Supposed To

I don't if I supposed to feel like this. I feel emotion but i don't feel it when I'm supposed to. I know when i do something it's bad but I usually don't feel bad. i can't relate to people or know I'm hurting someone emotionally. the only time i cry is when i get hurt. Sounds nerdy but the only thing i like is playing video games and riding by myself on my bike. I don't know. Just hope some comments with questions to ask so I know if this is normal or i'm just weird. I don't know. T

Premature And Uncomfortable Ejaculations

Up until a few years ago I never had any trouble with either erectile problems, last long and enjoyed healthy orgasms. Then about 2 plus years ago right after going through a breakup I came down with the most terrible burning in my penis especially when urinating, geese was like peeing hot battery acid out. I thought could I have gotten something from the ex even though we practiced safe sex. Went to the drs, did the following. Urine culture, swab,blood work, gave me a shot and put me on some super strong antibiotics. Tests all came back clean. Meanwhile continues to take the antibiotics and no improvement after 7-10 days.

Back to the drs and he did all the same tests again, blood, urine culture to see if he possibly missed something the first time around. Again everything came back clean. The Dr put me on yet more antibiotics and another couple shots,lol. After about a month or more it eventually went away. That was one very long month or burning. Never felt so miserable in my life.

Afterwards i noticed that when engaging in sex I came very fast and upon ejaculating felt like it didn't want to come out more like someone forgot to open the valve and then I would ejaculate and kinda burns and not much comes out.No real pressure.

Went to a urologist where he also checked and cultured for everything. Again everything came back clean. He performed a procedure where they put a scope up you to have a look see as he thought maybe a urethral stricture. No blockages or narrowing of urethra. Only thing he did notice was I didn't seem to void all the way as I still had some urine in my bladder. Prescribed something call Flomax as he really didn't know and was just guessing not a very good urologists to be honest.

Terrible side effects from the Flomax and had to stop taking the meds. Needless to say I am still suffering from the premature ejaculations and uncomfortable feeling ejaculations.

Sex Anxiety And Fear Of Premature Ejaculation

Suffered from OCD / sleep phobia for many years

Currently taking seroquel & occasionally zopiclone. Also in the past taken clomipramine

Here's the problem

I'm obsessing about sex. Firstly few months ago was worried about being able to perform (get hard)

Managed to get through this, did feel very down though. Now I'm obsessing about premature ejaculation, every time I have sex it's always on my mind to the point now where I can ejaculate too quick. This is causing me horrendous depression & I feel like I'm wasting my days. See I took a clomipramine tablet the other week & this cures premature ejaculation for me but I feel a failure to take it and feel like it will eventually not work. I rationally realise I'm creating the problem but have no control to the point where the problem is created.

All I'm thinking everyday every second is about arriving to soon. My partner is supportive and thinks I haven't got a problem but I feel funny down below. I can last longer by masterbating before sex but have read this is not a long term solution. I feel so anxious and sad that life seems difficult

Viagra For Premature Ejaculation And Other Conditions?

Viagra and medications like it (Levitra, Cialis) have been used safely and effectively for erectile dysfunction (ED) for nearly 20 years. In addition to their more recent use as recreational (non-prescribed) drugs, doctors and patients have tried them for other conditions, like premature ejaculation.

This post is not intended in any way to recommend recreational use of Viagra or any of the other related medications, or their use for conditions other than those for which they are approved by the FDA or other national regulatory agencies, but addresses questions to those men who have used, or are contemplating using, whether recommended by their doctor or otherwise, these medications for reasons other than erectile dysfunction.

1. For what conditions, other than ED, have you or are you using these medication?

2. What change(s), if any, did you notice in your sexual functioning?

3. Did you encounter any problems?

Cardiovascular :: Premature Beats - Heart Stopping And Restarting Itself?

I have premature beats, a bit of tachycardia, and valve problems in upper and lower chambers and a distorted aorta.  Recently (only at night - so that may be the reason), I am woken up by a huge breath and my chest is being thrown forward - well thats what it seems like?  Could this be the heart stopping and restarting or perhaps just sleep apnea?

Premature Ejaculation - Porn Addict And Masturbation Since Teenage

20 years old. I am still a virgin and unfortunately I have been a porn addicted my entire teenage year and masturbating for many times. I am beginning to have a relationship but I am afraid that I am suffering from PE. So many times that I get aroused when watching porn my fluids keeps coming out then I can't help it when I feel the urges to masturbate . It takes only a full minute or so after being completely aroused. I am terrified of this problem and I hope I don't have it. I am currently cutting back on all porn sites. But How can I be 100% sure that I suffer from PE and If I am, How can I treat this problem? please guide me and I hope.

One thing to mention is that when long time passes without porn or masturbation I can feel my urges stronger and I erectile easily so is this an indication that I don't have PE or that It will take small time just to recover from this issue because I fear that I will ejaculate soon after entering my girlfriend. Or It will be normal to ejaculate easily the first few times only then I will adjust to the feeling?

Sexual Health Men :: Premature Ejaculation And Sensitivity After Years Of Sex

Problem begun over recent years since I've been with my present partner (female).

We started off with a great sex life together seven years ago. She needs lots of satisfying and I used to satisfy her.

Over recent years I've found that I have started climaxing far too soon after only about 10 thrusts inside her and then afterwards my penis is extremely sensitive on the end which prevents oral sex or further touching. I soon become limp and can't get my erection back.

In order for her to enjoy our sex I now encourage her to continue with her toys after I've ejaculated too soon. It's getting to the stage now where we don't have sex very often as the satisfaction for her isn't there any more. We masturbate alone.

Hormones :: Spironolactone And Hives

I started taking 50 mg of Spironolactone November 1. Some time between Nov 14 and 18, I broke out in hives. I stopped taking the Spironolactone the week of Thanksgiving (around Nov 22/24).

I started Tri-Cyclen birth control on Dec 1. It is January 2 and I still have hives...

I spoke with a doctor, who instructed me to take Benadryl and Zyrtec. I spoke with my prescribing doctor of Spironolactone, who said he never had a case where someone broke out in hives due to Spironolactone. I think I'll be scheduling to see a dermatologist soon.


I'm sick of being drowsy every day, and I've gained 8 pounds in the last month and a half.

Hormones :: 21 Years Old And Low Testosterone

I am 21 years old and have found I have low testosterone. About 5 years ago, I started having heart racing, extreme fatigue, confusion/mind fog, and erectile issues. The doctors I saw chocked it up to anxiety disorder, and never checked my hormone levels.

I finally found out about my levels a couple of weeks ago, and I just got the results back for my LH, FSH, and SHBG - and I wanted some advice as to what I should push my doctor to do next. Here are my levels:
LH | RANGE: (1.5-9.3 mIU/mL) | VALUE: 2.4 FSH | RANGE: (1.4-18.1 mIU/mL) | VALUE: 1.5 SHBG | RANGE: (14-48 nmol/L) | VALUE: 17 TESTOSTERONE, TOTAL | RANGE: (249-836 ng/dL) | VALUE: 203

I currently have Kaiser Permanente and I don't believe they have anti-aging doctors, only endocrinologists. I want to be prepared to tell my doctor how to proceed because she is only an internal medicine - and she has been consulting with one of her fellow endocrinologist practitioners for how to proceed.

Hormones :: 17 OHP Went Down In Response To ACTH Stim?

I'm a new member to the board but I have found it very useful reading as I have been trying to understand my own hormone imbalances. I was diagnosed with PCOS but I am not done ruling out everything else, yet.

I took the ACTH stim test (high dose) recently to test for NCAH. These were my levels:

Cortisol Levels:
Base: 11.9
30 M: 29.7
60 M: 32.6

17 OHP levels (luteal):
Base: 124
30 M: 112
60 M: 91

In all of my research, healthy women and women with PCOS get elevated levels of 17 OHP during the ACTH stim test. Mine, on the other hand, went down. At an earlier point, during my folicular phase, I took a base 17 OHP that showed me at 35. And another serum cortisol (AM) was at 10.9.

If anyone knows a reason why my 17 OHP would go down so much in response to ACTH, I would really like to know. Also, I've taken several hormone tests before this, so if there are other levels you think are relevant, I might be able to tell you.

Hormones :: Clomid Stopped Working

I have been using Clomid for the last 5 month to try and repair my low test levels. I have been having to self diagnose and medicate as my doctor will not take me seriously as my levels just scrape the normal range, I know myself that my levels are not right. Before going on Clomid I had no sex drive, no morning wood, ever!! tense and irritable and lethargic. A week after I started on Clomid my sex drive was back, morning wood every day really felt back to normal. unfortunately the positive effects have slowly diminished over the last few weeks to a point that I feel as bad if not worse than before, morning wood gone, no energy and feeling pretty miserable.

I am wondering, does anyone else have this experience of Clomid working for a time and then just stopping all of a sudden?

Hormones Affecting My Marriage - Severe PMS

I am taking Prozac for Depression/Anxiety, I have endr. and Severe PMS.

I had my bloodwork done and the OB nurse said my Thyroid was in normal range, but my endroil level was low. It was -20? Last year it was 90's. I have absolutely NO SEX drive what so ever! It hurts and I could care less, and this is NOT FAIR TO my husband at all. I have been married 22 years this coming December, and I know he is frustrated about this.

I am worried. I am tired, still depressed and no sex drive what so ever, what can I do, or buy? Is there a medication for woman that can help? I am 46 and was told I am not in menopause, but let me tell you I think I am permi. Last month's period was all the same PMS systems, but was very light flow and black/brown in color. I am worried all the way around and don't know what to do? I am running out of options. I don't want to lose the love of my life, and want to feel better.

Please anyone. I need some help, advice, etc. This is not fair to him, and I need a better quality of life, even with all the stress in my life with my mother who has dementia, and a handicapped brother. I just can't take much more, and my Husband has been my best friend through everything with me, especially my fathers death, I wa a daddy's girl, and would not of made it without my husbands help. I am a very weak person when it comes to stuff like this.

Hormones :: Low Testosterone, Incomplete Puberty

I am 28 years old, male, and was currently told I had Hypogonadism and incomplete puberty upon physical examination and blood results due to low testosterone. I went to see a general physician due to being symptomatic (Lack of body hair, balding, Gynecomastia, very sparse facial hair, underdeveloped sexual organs, Tired, Moody etc). I have been symptomatic since around age 12 so it has been ongoing for quite some time. I had 3 doctors all tell me that there was nothing wrong and the issue would correct itself. They chalked it up to a hormone imbalance.

My current doctor is running some more blood work and wants to do a karyotype to rule out genetic problems like Klinefelter's. I suppose what I'm trying to determine is if pituitary or thyroid complications can be ruled out by blood results? My doc says that it doesn't seem to be pointing to thyroid or pituitary issues but that the only way to determine truly is by doing an MRI for my brain and having a karyotype to rule out xxy.

He did mention that my testosterone levels are abnormally low for my "age group" and that I am underdeveloped and have incomplete puberty or lack of secondary sexual characteristics for my age. I do look quite young. I do recall having a stroke and facial paralysis when I was 2 years old, maybe I have some brain/gland damage. They never were able to determine what caused the stroke and paralysis. I recovered for the most part and have about 90% function on the affected area of the mouth and face.

I'm just thinking whether I should go see an endocrinologist or continue with this doctor. This doctor seems to want to put me on testosterone therapy which I've heard terrible things about. He feels that I would benefit from it. I'm really shooting in the dark here as I have no idea what to do next. Below are some of the results back from the blood work, Don't know what to specifically look for so I'll write what I see or think is related to the subject at hand. Could this be Pituitary or thyroid related? Does blood work accurately help determine pituitary and thyroid disorders?
LH 4.4
TSH 0.90

Hormones :: High Total Testosterone (LH Of 25 And An Fsh Of 6.6)

I'm a 22 y/o female. I have always had an irregular period, but it's now been almost 4.5 months without one. I had an LH of 25 and an Fsh of 6.6. My doctor at student health says this is normal, but after doing some research that appears so only if I'm about to have my period. It has been 7 days and no period. I also had low fasting insulin serum and a total testosterone of 103 (normal 8-60) my free testosterone was normal though at 1.1. My prolactin was 13.3 and my TSH was low normal.

Orgasm, Hormones And Ejaculation Induced Acne

I'm a 25 year old male, who has been ok courses of antibiotics for years now to treat my acne. I have recently discovered that I only seem to flair up when I having sex is a no no, unless I want to break out a couple of days later. I been to my doctor today and I mentioned in detail what happens and asked if there is anything I can take to stop this DHT and stop it from flaring me up. He said there is absolutely nothing he can suggest and said I would grow out of it eventually.

Now I'm on here asking for anyone's advice on what I could buy online or anything like herbal I can take before I have sex and after to calm the hormones down to stop me flaring up. I have tried saw palmetto but it didn't do anything to control the breakouts. All I want is a good sex life (me being male and all) but I'm finding it hard knowing that I will breakout straight after having sex, it lowers my confidence dramatically and I have trouble leaving the house knowing people are staring at me :/ I've just started on doxycycline today.
