Are my symptoms all Svt or something else?

Posted , 6 users are following.

So I have recently been diagnosed with Svt and besides the racing heart I have other symptoms. Just trying to figure out and see if they are separate issues because I also think I'm in perimenopause as well. So i seem to get a weird feeling in the diaphragm area usially after I eat and like there is a lot of gas in my chest. I constantly burp to see if that helps. Sometimes it does. I also have hot and cold flashes. Insomnia has kicked in this week which triggers my Svt so I am fatigued a lot lately. Just wondered what symptoms people get with Svt. I know lack of sleep, bending over, and excerise are all triggers for me. The heavy diaphragm with a nauseous stomach I'm not sure if that's the Svt or not. Any similar experiences? Thanks

    Did you notice if you get the gas in the chest after you eat a certain kind of food. I had similar problems and my gastroenterologist told me to stay from tomatoes, garlic, onions, orange juice, and anything too acidic. If you continue to have symptoms, you should see your primary care doctor or gastroenterologist. I, too am in perimenopause, so I get alot of symptoms such as nausea, heart palpitations, and dizziness

    I have the same thing after i eat.  If my stomach is calm, the heart NEVER races. It is gas or the food gets stuck up in the upper stomach and presses against the diaphram and irritates the vagus nerve!  Make your self burp, rock back and forth and bend at the waist when you do this.  This will push the food down and the heart will go back to normal!

      Thank you. You have described exactly what happens to me. I have felt really bad all day. I feel like there is a mini tremor going in in my body right now. I'm scared to eat because it will get bad again I hope it goes away soon. Trying not to let it escalate to panic attack.
