I was diagnosed with psvt 2 weeks ago. I was sitting down playing with my phone when I noticed my heart racing. I took off my jacket and begn to walk outside trying to take deep breaths in but couldnt so I panicked. Called 911, my hr was 150. I thought it was a panic attack but it wasnt. The doctor said it was psvt and to follow up with my doctor right away. Since then ive had 3 episodes. My last one was the scariest though, my hr went up to 130 but then my face went numb, my throat hot and I had burning in my chest. I panicked and called the 24/7 nurse hotline and they pretty much said call 911 you're having a stroke. Of course min later the ambulance arrives and im feeling fine. They took me to the hospital, same doctor, seemed kind of irritated. After all the tests everything looked fine. Saw my doctor whose referred me to a cardiologist. My appointment is in 2 weeks. I have a 5 year old and im scared to go anywhere with him in fear that ill have an episode or worse. Last night I couldnt sleep my resting heart rate is pretty high which makes it hard to fall asleep. I keep thinking "what if I die next time?" Im even considering taking my money out of my bank lol. I know it sounds extreme and my symptoms arent as bad as others from wht ive read but I cant help it sometimes. Anyone out there with successful stories? Has anyone had symptoms/Psvt dissipate over time?
