    When I had my last episode of Ventricular Tachycardia it was a constant 12 hours of it.

    Since my ablation, I did have one episode where my heart skipped 8 beats in a row and I felt rather faint. Now I just get a single ectopic beat every fourth beat when I do get them.

    Mine wasn't by anxiety. Ectopic beats van be harmless or a symptom of heart failure. Is this the only time you had them?

    Mine started happening very occasionally, with weeks between episodes, but got gradually worst.

    Hi there, 

    I had constant palpitations before I had an abrupt episode of SVT that landed me in the hospital with a bpm of 256! How lovely. Now they treated it and I did my ablation, and am completely SVT. It is definitely a smart idea to get your heart checked out. Anxiety is a common trigger for palpitations, however doctors like to use this excuse when they can’t find anything at the moment. So definitely request a holter monitor, echocardiogram and even a possible stress test. These things will help rule out any structural and take a little peak at your cardiac functioning throughout your day! 

    I find now that I had my ablation, I still have palpitations and flutters. When I’m anxious or have any strong emotion - they are definitely more prominent. So do not worry. Most palpitations are benign however for the sake of your mind, get it checked out so you can live a normal life without any fears.
