I have a Medtronic Claria MRI Quad CRTD (9/7/23) and AV Node ablation. Like so many others here, I am having PVC issues. Had them right after device implant and ablation. Calmed down, had rate reset from 80 to 70 about a month ago. Had 2 weeks of really annoying PVCs and brief NSVTs. On advice from knowledgable people here I spoke with my cardio and raising the base back to 80 for now seemed like a good move. First week or so of that was good. PVCs decreased quite a bit. Now they seem to be rearing their ugly little heads again. After reading much here, my tale of woe is not unusual. My question is: Why might it mean that I get them the most during times when I'm sitting around or resting and don't experience them nearly as much when up and active (house work, taking care of 3 yo grandson etc). From what I've read here, there are folks who get them at just the opposite times. I'm just lately getting back into intentional exercise. Might this help decrease PVCs?
Eating always seems to play a part, or an empty stomach as well. Trying to figure out what I can eat without getting the stomach irritating the nerve.

I am just now 40 but have had these blackouts all my life. I am thrilled with the pacer and would do it all over again.
