I have bouts of SVT that occur when I play tennis (not every time though). Had one last July that lasted about 5 mins and didn’t need treatment. This put me off playing but now started playing again, first session last week was fine, played on Monday and triggered one. Luckily one of the people who plays tennis is a retired GP. He felt my pulse and said the best thing was to go to the hospital to capture it on ECG (the hospital is near the tennis club) but after a few minutes it went back to normal rhythm. He suggested visiting my GP and asking for a referral to get tests done to determine where the problem is occurring. Just wondering what other people think. I am concerned that as the problem only happens with tennis, goes away on its own, doesn’t last long and I always feel fine with it he will dismiss it. I would feel happier knowing an episode has been recorded as I have worn a Holter meter in the past that didn’t capture anything. Just wondering what other people think.
