Just hoping someone can relate to my symptoms. I’m 23, I had my first ever SVT in November 2019, I was at work and out the blue it felt like my heart was flip flopping in my chest! I went to hospital with a heart rate of 200 and they gave me that horrible drug 3 times to bring it down. I had never heard of an SVT before this. Since this I haven’t been the same, everyday I Experience different symptoms, palpitations under my left breast. Sometimes short lived flutters in my chest, and the most strange one is where my heart suddenly feels like it’s stopped for a brief second and it sends a rush to my head! Has anyone experienced this? I am yet to be diagnosed with SVT even though I had one, I’m seeing a cardiologist next week and hoping he has some answers for me. I have had an echo, (all good apart from a slight murmur) a 24 hour monitor and a 7 day monitor, currently waiting on results. I no longer drink coffee, or drink alcohol because I freak it’s going to bring on an episode! Though I do still smoke, my doctor put me on 10mg of propranolol which does help but doesn’t get rid of the palpitations and weird sensations! Also I took myself of citalopram 20mg last year in around March time... and I remember starting to get palpitations then... I know antidepressants can affect the heart, my mistake! Does anyone else experience this?
