My 19 year-old daughter began having a racing pulse a couple of months ago (college student - didn't tell me at first). Her pulse can jump to 180/190 for no reason. Last weekend, her pulse spiked on Friday, then went down. On Saturday, she went for a walk, about 4mph, and her pulse was 132, then 96 while resting on Saturday, then in the 80s on Sunday. She also has chest pain. Last night, after walking a mile on the treadmill, she stopped because her chest hurt.
She will be home for the three day weekend, so I made an appointment with her doctor on Monday. In the meantime, her pulse is normal today, but she says her chest hurts. My question is whether, with SVT, chest pain can happen while the pulse is normal, or only when it is elevate?
She has a history of feeling like she is going to black out, but never has; light headedness upon standing (way more than I ever experience it); headaches.
Thank you. I'm beside myself, as you can imagine.
