I'm new to here but relieved to see there are other people suffering with the same condition as me. I've got SVT and have had some pretty bad episodes recently, with my heart rate at about 190bpm for 1h+. Have ended up in hospital twice over last 2 months to be given adenosine. After much contemplation I've decided to tell my work about it as I'm a teacher and i can't always leave easily if an episode comes on so thought it's best for someone to know. It's kind of been made into a huge deal with risk assessments etc and I'm wondering now if I've made a mistake. I have had to miss work though due to exhaustion after a bad episode so maybe it's best to be honest about it 😔 sometimes I almost fear people don't believe me because I'm completely fine when not having an episode. Just wondering if anyone has been in a similar position and and what you guys think. Am on bb for the svt but it's not working brilliantly at the moment!
