  • Groin pain post-EP study

    Hi everyone. Last Wednesday (it is currently Monday the 25th) I underwent an EP study for possible SVT. I say it this way because I ended up not having SVT at all and have a healthy heart with no abnormalities! I am only 23 and thought I had an episode in July (went to the ER, got adenosine, etc etc)...

  • Is my Arrhythmia Life-Threatening or Benign?

    When you attend your local ED or A&E department with a Rythm disturbance or "unusual heartbeat". There is no clear indicator on arrival for it being life threatening or benign until clinical studies are complete. For example, an ECG or Echocardiogram may be needed to show your heart function...

  • 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...

  • Just got my abalation done and I feel so much better!

    I just wanted to share my experiences about SVT. I have dealt with SVT for a few years now. I didn't know what it was at first when I first experienced the fast heart beat, so I didn't think anything of it. I would just try to rest or if it was cold outside during the time I would be experiencing...

  • Does this sound like SVT?

    So I have anxiety, and two doctors told me that anxiety can increase your heart rate to high numbers. For two days, my heart quickly went up to 176 and the other 184. I was on my laptop and was anxious before they both started. They were a gradual increase to about 150, then I stood to walk and when...

  • Atrial Tachycardia

    Does anyone get plain atrial tachycardia?  I've had A-fib, which is different and doesn't cause an increased pulse.  I had one previous episode of atrial tachycardia that lasted about 24 hours.  I was able to stop it with meditation.  I'm in another episode, now, for about...

  • Svt caused by air changes

    I've had svt for many years and it used to be caused by postural changes like bending down and reaching up turning over in bed. I've found that over the last few years my svt has increased in frequency and now it is more likely to start after walking in drafty areas or under the air conditioning...

  • SVT - alcohol a trigger?!

    Hi everyone As we all know alcohol is a trigger but I'm just wondering if any of you still drink and how much you drink before an attack may occur? I haven't touched a drop of alcohol in 5 months because I am so scared of having an episode. I am only 21 and I do not want it to control my life....

  • Adenosine

    For the first time in a long time I required a second dose of Adenosine to convert my SVT.  Usually 6mg will do it but this was a stubborn one.  The Dr decided to go straight to 12mg for the next dose, telling me it wouldn't feel any worse.  It really did feel much worse I think!!...
