    Hi

    I've never been on this site before and was amazed that the first SVT experience I selected to read was very simliar to my own experience. I have SVT episodes at least every other day but have only had 2 where I have been hospitalised. With the first one my heart had been racing for over 3 hours and was advised by an emergency doctor to go to A&E but once there the episode stopped. The second time it didn't and I was taken by ambulance to hospital - my heart rate like yours was 208 at its highest. I was given a very small syringe to blow into which didn't help and was then told I needed medication and was given the same description that you mentioned - that it makes you feel like you are dying (not really what you want to hear before they inject you!). Similarly, the first 2 injections of medication didn't work but the final one did. It is very strange, SVT, on my part anyway, in that you don't feel unwell just a bit breathless and 'not quite right'. I keep thinking about the catheter ablation and have said that the next episode where I end up in hospital will be the one that makes my decision about having the procedure.
