Hi everyone, I'm a 23 year old female who has suffered on and off all my life with anxiety. Last year I had what was thought to be an svt episode but it wasn't caught on ecg so it got out down to anxiety. I have suffered with ectopic heart beats through the anxiety it caused and just a few days ago my heart skipped and sped up to 240bpm I called an ambulance and had to be taken in as it wouldn't stop I had to be given 2 shots on adenosine which reverted my heart back to normal rhythm. I had to stay in for 6 hours but was let home with some beta blockers and a referral to a cardiologist.
The thing is I'm so scared that I will die from this, my anxiety just won't stop it goes round and round in my head. I don't get episodes often maybe 1 every couple of months but they are very scary.
Please does anyone have any good advice to stop me worrying as I believe these will be the end of me.
