[size=18:9070f28eea]I have been having svt's for about 10 years. At first I only had 2 or 3 a year. But once I had my first child they increased to about 2 or 3 times a month. I start having flutters (ectopics) mid menstrual cycle and then a few days before my period I will prob. have increased ectopics followed by several episodes of svt. This has been consistant now for two and a half years apart from about three months when I Lost a stone in weight during a controlled low fat diet. I have been unable to find out if this is normal. Unfortunatly once I regained the weight and went back to my normal pattern of eating the svt returned. I have noted each episode now for a few years so I am aware of a deffinate pattern. I do have Verapamil but only take it if I am unable to control it myself, which I usually do within a few mins. by Valsava manouver. On occasion I have needed medical assistance if it has continued for more than a few hours, in which case I have had injections into my arm. i have been offered ablation but as yet have not decided to go down that route. I might try the diet again but this time if it keeps the svt at bay I will try harder to stick to it. I also intend to find out if excercise would be of any benefit. :? [/size:9070f28eea]
