Hi I am a very fit active male with a healthy lifestyle. My SVT started when a few years ago at 38yrs I started having attacks of dizzy spells which made me feel faint and sick. Getting out of the car, bending down etc. The gaps between attacks varied from none to few time a year. DR, hospital appointment dismissed it as meigran attacks. Six months ago while exercising my HR went from 120-240 instantly, 20 minutes of trying to control my breathing stopped it. When attack had stopped was able to carry on as normal, but went to A&E to be checked out and was referred. One month later another attack when bending down, A&E again and was kept in. Third attack came on will siiting down, felt twinges all day, however this time attack caused loss os feeling in fingers & feet & a headache. Lasted 20-30minutes with tremours afterwards. I am at present under a cardio & electrophysiologist. My ecg indicates a bugarder type 2 pattern. I have been issued with a cario monitor and due to start betablockers. I have been recommended for an EP study/abulation. But unsure what route to go down i.e. meds/inplant recorder or EP study. Has anybody else found attacks to become worse over time.
