Can someone help me please

Hello I'm 33 years old and I just had my heart zapped this week. I never knew I was born with heart problems. Can someone please tell me what some of the symptoms are if I'm not feeling right after two days thank you.

    HI Elizabeth, did they say it was AF or something else and have you had any symptoms?

      Hi Elizabeth, you can get a fast beat, irregular beats, all sorts of strange things going on but you can usually tell when it beats so fast you can feel it quite noticeably and did they provide you with beta blockers to slow it down such as Bisprolol? Sometimes you can go for years without it happening again but sometimes it comes back again soon after. Are you on medication or just observation and regular check ups?

      Hi again, the Beta Blockers slow you heart rate down so it has chance to get back into a normal rythm and stop it going so fast. Do you feel giddy and breathless at times and like there is a lot of pressure in your head as your blood pressure rises significantly with such a fast beat?

    Hi Elizabeth

    As Mazie says, if you can, could you say which procedure you had? Was it an EP study or did they just get your heart back into a regular rythm or was it something else? Also, hae they given you any medication for it?

    Wishing you all the best

    Hi again (!)

    I also didn't 'feel' or know that my heart was beating too quickly - it was only when I was dizzy and felt it hard to breathe that I knew something wasn't right

    Hi Elizabeth you may have SVT. superventricular tachycardia. Look it up. There are some easy ways to stop it like the valsala maneuver. you should go to your regular Dr and get explanation s about what you have. Once You have the knowledge you can deal with it. good luck and hang in there.
