I'm female and 50 and after being diagnosed with ectopic heartbeats 'that everyone gets' and 'anxiety attacks' for several years, I finally,12 weeks ago,had a diagnosis of SVT after a couple of hours with a heart rate of 250. This was controlled with adenosine in A& E. I'm finding it difficult to get back to my normal lifestyle even though everyone says that I won't die from it and a scan shows my heart is fine apart from slightly enlarged upper chambers which apparently isn't a problem!
I don't smoke, have stopped any alcohol (only had 3 glasses of wine at weekend) cut out caffeine and eat healthier. I seem to feel discomfort in the middle of my chest and am still having ectopics with short bursts of SVT which have stopped so far without intervention. Anyone got any tips on how they got back to normal as I'm getting on everyones nerves who tell me to just forget about it?
