feeling rather miserable and scared. had successful avnrt ablation oct 2018. the after effects were almost worse with constant ectopics and runs ectopics. 6 weeks ago I was sure I was getting svt again for few seconds every few days as it makes me go very faint although a run of ectopics does so wasnt sure. past weekend I had what I thought was run ectopics and went very faint then seemed ok but within 10 mins svt back at 170bpm. this lasted 15 mins. over next 6 hrs had another episodes and the last 2 were in a&e so def svt . thankfully they stopped without needing adenosine. i am now back on verapamil 3 times a day. cant take betablockers due to childhood asthma. seeing specialist arrythmia nurse in sept and having another echocarduagram. i only had the ablation because i had one episode where the svt triggered a 5hr run of atrail fibrillation. obviously a fib is much more serious than svt.
how do people cope psychologically with never knowing when it will strike. i am still having ectopics and runs of them daily and each time i am anxious it will trigger the svt.
