So I was diagnose with idiopathic ventricular tachycardia a couple of months ago based on the ECG attached. It originates from the left ventricle which is much more difficult to treat with ablation than the right ventricle, and comes with a higher chance of complications due to the much more complex anatomy of the left ventricle, so i'd like to avoid that.
Long story short: I'm focusing on prevention rathern than cure. I'd like to find the cause, and hear about other peoples anecdotes of what worsens their palpitations, as the medical profession as a whole seems to be at a loss what causes these.
Mine started after I'd been working out for 6 weeks. I blame the protein shakes + calorie filler shakes. They had no rubbish ingredients in them, but maybe the sheer amount of calories caused my VTs to start manifesting. A week after I quit, the PVCs lessened significantly and now I only get ~10 per day, down from ~100-200. But before this whole thing started, I got 0 (at least it felt that way). So I still feel like something is wrong, and some days are much worse than others.
P.S. I have attached an ECG which the diagnosis was based on, for those that are interested. This was the worst it got to a couple of months ago; it has not been this severe since.
