After-effects of episode etc.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello everyone,

I am 20 year old male. I had 3-D ablation two years back. Yesterday I got episode of SVT while I was running. It lasted around thirty minutes. While my heart was beating fast, I just lied down on the floor and tried to hold my breath. It worked and heart beat rate returned to normal. By normal I mean, it was around 100-115 for next 30 minutes after episode. I had slight uncomfortable feeling in the chest, so I decided to eat and sleep( the episode came around 10:30 am.) . After I got up, my heart rate had pretty much returned to normal. It was resting around 70s.

But when I started walking for some time, the bpm again started shooting up. If I stopped walking and sat at one place, it would again go back to normal.

The condition has slightly improved today. I could walk more than yesterday but far from normal.

It would be of great help to me, if anyone could share how they feel after a long SVT episode. Do you face same troubles as me?

    Hi I do tend to feel a bit tired and very anxious for a couple of days after svt.

    Do you know why you are getting svt?

    I do sometimes get them when out running which is really annoying as I have to stop.

      I get episode when I do activities that races the heart. I am not on medication and had undergone ablation which was unsuccessful. That's why I need to limit my physical activities to a extent. I wear heart rate monitor while working out and has to stop when bpm reaches certain limit. Its really annoying.

      How do you workout?

      Thanks for replying.
