What are symptoms of premature ventricular contractions?

ANSWER

If you get PVCs once in a while, you may feel like your heart skipped a beat, but that's not what happens. They actually cause an extra beat. If you get them more often, you may have more of a fluttering sensation. And if they happen enough that they affect your heart's ability to pump blood, you may feel dizzy or weak.
