Respiratory issues, dizziness with PVC'S. treatment?

Resolved Question:

I've been having PVC's, dizzyness and some respiratory issues the last couple days. The PVC's occur about 5 times a hour on average and the dizzy spells literally only last a second but are very strong. I went to the ER because of those Saturday night and they did an EKG and ran some blood work and everything seemed OK so they sent me home and told me to follow up with my doctor. Now I have also had some issues if I take a fairly deep breath I cough a dry cough and it hurts my neck/jaw. Also have had a few headaches and I almost never get headaches. Help

Thank you for your query at
Do you have chest pain or breathlessness?
Your jaw pain on coughing; is it a sharp pain or dull pain? You are having dizziness after PVCs. I would suggest you get a 2D echo and a Chest Xray done as basic investigations. Also, kindly upload your ECG if possible.

The only breathlessness is mainly if I take a deep breath, unless you count me coming up the stairs or something but I'm also out of shape so that doesn't count. As far as the pain it's a very dull deep pain, it doesn't happen every cough but about half. I got a chest xray today but haven't heard anything back yet but the dizzyness and the PVC's never really happen at the same time, they seem seperate, like today I was having about 1 PVC every other minute at least but no dizzy, then a hour later a couple dizzy spells. I don't actually have the EKG unfortunately unless it's online somewhere, I know while I was there it showed 9 PVC's in the 3.5 hours I was there and heart rate was right at 118 the whole time.

You have a dull neck pain unrelated to exertion. You akso have dizziness. Alongside you have pvcs though unrelated to dizziness. To complete your work up you shoild get a 2d echo and a 24 hours holter done to ascertain the number and frequency of pvcs and also rule out other serious arrhythmia events causing pvcs. If these turn out to be normal then the next step would be to do a tmt to rule out coronary ischemia as a cause of neck pain.
