  • Doctors think I have SVT

    Hey I'm 20 years old and have struggled with strange heart rythems. At first it would only happen with sports like football and basketball. It would start with quick cuts on the court or landing hard. My heart would feel off. It beats fast and it feels wonky. Like the top of my heart beats differently...

  • Living With SVT

    Does anyone else worry about their SVT or do you just accept it as a harmless nuisance.  I can't stop worrying about getting another attack, how do you accept it and live a normal life again?

  • Useful technique for SVT attacks

    Hi, just had an SVT attack and thought I would share with you all the technique that just worked for me, and it's worked twice before as well. Basically you just lay on your right hand side, curl up into a bit of ball (ie knees tucked up and head forwards, fetal position) and then just completely...

  • Anyone else have problems with svt triggered by walking?

    Occasionally I find that my heart gets into a state where any major movement seems to trigger tachycardia. I'll be standing still and it's fine. But then I take 2 steps and it takes off. Then I stop and after a few seconds it's back to normal. Take a few more steps and it takes off again....

  • Medication query

    I've recently been diagnosed with SVT and was given betablockers ( Bisoprolol) to take regularly. However I found the side effects so bad that my doctor suggested I just take them when I felt an episode starting. This happened yesterday but they made me feel worse than the SVT itself. My doctor had...

  • Svt, anxiety and ringing in my ears

    Hi, a few months ago I was diagnosed with svt and it seems to change my life completely. It’s given me such anxiety to go out anywhere yet to drive. I decided that I didn’t want to go on the medication and to do the ablation but when I was under it was unsuccessful to make my arrhythmias come out. I’ve...

    I had my procedure done on 6/11/17 after having suffered with this since 2011. However, it did progressively become worse over these past 12 months. I was aware during the procedure and didn't feel too uncomfortable at all. The worse part was having to be still during it. It took around 3 hours and...

    Since i was about 12 i have noticed episodes of SVT. I visited the GP 2 years ago and was referred for a holter monitor which caught my heart jumping to 185 during very light exercise.

    Hey guys! Thank you so much for all your help so far. My ablation is fast approaching and while I'm excited there's still this bit of me that is freaking out and wondering if I should cancel. I can deal with the episodes themselves as they don't freak me out and I don't get anxious about...

  • My ablation is done :)

    I had my ablation a week ago today. All went fine, the procedure took around 2 1/2 hours. I was aware of what was happening and able to watch it on the screen next to me. The only time I felt a little uncomfortable was when the ablation was taking place, although it really wasn't a big deal. The...

  • Did anyone get relief from taking magnesium?

    Hi all, I have AVNRT and am awaiting a second ablation. But in the last few months I get a lot of flutters.  These seem to be after I eat and then I get a lot of gas and burping.  My heart does that lull thing. Just feels like a flutter. I think it is aggitated from the gas ect. Just wondered...
