Up until the last two months i have only ever had episodes of SVT roughly once or twice a year. Recently however they have been getting a lot more frequent and in the last two months i have had three episodes. I have been in hospital twice this week, once for an SVT episode lasting 90 minutes at a rate of 240bpm which thankfully stopped before i got to hospital and the the second time because i was having lots of flutters or forceful beats every 3 minutes or so. I have previously discussed an ablation with a cardiologist which i didnt react well to and ended with me fainting in his office! I was also able to discuss the option of beta blockers recently with a doctor who said he would be happy to prescribe them to me. I understand beta blockers are only a temporary solution however if anyone could share their experience with them i.e whether they have decreased SVT episodes or any side effects that would be much appreciated. Also if anyone has had an ablation and whether or not that has worked for them.
