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.

    I Elizabeth.I  thought it looked wrong- it should be supraventricular tachycardia. Apparantly you can have chest soreness after defibrillation. You could be anxious too which is completely understandable. I have a neice and nephew with SVT and they dont get it very often which is good. Hopefully that will be the same for you. If its AF you may only get it intermittentlly too. Watch what you think may trigger it then you can avoid the things that bring it on. There are various medications and l take Sotolol which has helped me immensly. You need to be on a blood thinner too. Im sure the doctors will look after you.. Its all very overwhelming in the beginning, but you will be fine.

      My doctor said I don't need any meds for my heart anymore. Plus he said I can go back to work on May 4. I do a lot of lifting at work. I'm calling him today for the follow up and I'm going to let him know about my job and see what he says about it. I'm also in more pain where they went into today than yesterday and Wednesday.

      your heart is a muscle and muscles can hurt for days after a new work out. you will hopefully feel better in a couple of days. No meds is good news. They all have side effects so count yourself lucky! take care.
