I was diagnosed as having svt just over a year ago although I have had palpitations for over 7 years. My symtoms were annoying but I could cope until nov 06 when it lasted over 3 hours and I coulnt catch my breath and had tightness in my chest. I was given Adenosine at a@e but was exhausted for days afterwards. After frequent episodes and many visits to a@e whilst on verapamill I have finally an app for an ablation on the 31st jan. I feel as if svt has taken over my life because of the frequency of attacks. I am an otherwise fit and healthy 54 year old woman but svt has left me constanly tired and lacking in energy. I also have a leaky heart valve and an underactive thyroid to contend with. I am scared to have the ablation but i am trying to think posatively and look forward to getting my life back to normal. Reading this web site has encouraged me ten fold so thanks to everyone who has made the effort.
