hey everyone, firstly i would like to say that seeing others with/ talking about this as well is extremely comforting. just reading all the comments/posts helps.
i was first diagnosed with svt when i was 11, after playing hockey for the first time in a couple months. i remember that the doctors could never catch me having an episode on the ECG or halter monitors so i was never properly diagnosed for treatment. throughout high school and college i dont remember having them or having them very mildly and infrequently so ill leave that.
fast forward to this month ( im 23 now) and low and behold they are back. i had an episode 3 weeks ago, with a major anxiety/panic attack that came along with it. i was taken to the hospital but again my heart was back to normal before the ECG could pick it up. does anyone else get the anxiety attack with their SVT episodes? this has made things much more difficult for me as the anxiety about having the episodes lasts for days/weeks afterwards. i have been to a doctor today and he prescribed me ativan for when im feeling the anxiety coming on. also starting the process of getting into a cardiologist again since i havent seen one since my very first attack.
i also had an episode 3 days ago from nothing more than me filling a water bottle up at the sink, which promted the visit to the doctor today. i had a coffee in the morning and went to work for the day and it was evening at the time if the episode. i see most people posting about triggers on here, so i was wondering what you guys thought about that?
heres to hoping i can get it diagnosed sonner rather than later, doc said the waiting list here in alberta can be 3-4 weeks just for a call back
thanks in advance for any replies, hearing other peoples opinions would be greatly appreciated.
