Hi all, I had my first major SVT on Monday, upon arriving at hospital I was whisked straight through to resus as it turned out my heart rate was at 224. Previusly just thought I was having palpitations and docs said was probably related to the change (at 37!).
All other episodes have been short lived and managed by sitting down and deep breathing, but this biggy could not be stopped. I googled for help and tried the 'strain', but after an hour and a half, thought I needed a bit of help.
Thankfully, it stopped of it's own accord after about 30 mins in resus just as the doc was about flush out the cannula to give me some meds to stop it.
My doc has sent a referral to a cardiolologist so I am waiting to see what they say.
In the meantime, I feel horrendous! Can anyone confirm they feel the same after an attack? My left side hurts, I am soooooooooo tired, thirsty, can't seem to shift a rotten headache. Am I going doolally or is this all perfectly normal after an attack?
Thanks in advance of any kind words of reassurance!
