Started with svt 6 yrs ago at menopause. Attacks only lasted minute although went very faint. Always had bad ectopics since i was in my 20's. Finally diagnosed two half years ago after having loop recorder implanted. I refused drugs or ablation as attacks though almost daily were very short. Had bad flu 8 weeks ago. 10 days had run of what felt like ectopics then my heart was racing to 196bpm. Panicked rang ambulance. Taken to a&e. Had 6 short attacks in 5 hrs with sinus tachy of 120 between svt attacks. Caught svt attack on 12 lead ecg so have exact origin which cardio pleased about for ablation. I have echo scan next week. I was given 1.25mg bisoprolol. Not keen on side effects. Heavy chest. Low bp and pulse. In week since hospital stay have had 3 attacks following same pattern. Sudden run of what feel like either ectopics or short svt episode then sudden increase in heartrate but not up to 150bpm. Eventually after 30 mins heartrate goes back. Feel like a really bad anxiety attack during. Always starts after evening meal? I see cardio again in 3 weeks to discuss ablation. Just wondered what others think of whats happening to me.
