Hi I'm a 26 year old male, I'm healthy, but a smoker, have been for 9 years, although I'm slowly cutting down to a stop.
On December 12th 16 I have my first svt, It lasted about 16 hours, I just tried to ride I out, very silly I know, average of about 210 bpm. I went in am ambulance to a+e and it terminated on its own shortly after.
During this time I had gastroenteritis so I was feeling poorly, I was extremely dehydrated also, after svt I was very fatigued and tired for several days.
I then got a viral infection on my chest, same on or a different one I don't know, coughing up sometimes green, sometimes clear phlem, but just as this seemed to be clearing I had another svt 10.1.17 around 176 bpm, this had to be terminated at the hospital using adenosine, which took the 3rd attempt and it was at double dose (awful).
I have passed a all major and minor blood tests, every is normal, and healthy, chest x-ray clear.
Cardiologist appointment next week.
I have cut out alcohol and caffeine( I'd love a coffee :-(, as I was consuming quite a lot of caffeine) I drink just water and decaff tea and have opted for a more healthy balanced diet.
Beetween the first and second episide, I kept experiencing random episodes that would last 5-15 mins, where I would feel weak and shakey, my head would feel fuzzy, and I'd get slight palpations but my heart rate was normal, if not slightly rasied.
After my second incident I am getting them more frequently and they seem slightly stronger, with added dizziness, I can feel chest discomfort also, they pass and I feel okay again.
I have just been given bisoporol 1.25mg, and apart from loose bowel movements I don't immediately see any side effects, although I could be wrong.
During an svt I am very calm, to a stage where medical professionals think I've had it for years, it is during these dodgey incidents where I feel uncomfortable, I was checked out by a doctor whilst one was occurring and she saw nothing amiss.
I was wondering what these smaller incidents could be?
I apologise for the long winded comment, and I'd like to thank users for there help after reading the forums here you have been a great to help me keep as calm as possible during this recent turn my body has decided to go on.
If you need more information please ask.
