I was diagnosed with SVT two year's ago (now 57) but the symptoms were infrequent enough and manageable so my doctor agreed that doing nothing was perfectly acceptable. In my case, symptoms have been a racing heartbeat (190 - 205 bmp) while doing aerobic exercise (jogging, cross country skiing) but I have learned how to restore the bmp to a normal rate fairly quickly.
I decided to see if it was time to consider catheter ablation only because the rapid heart beat incidents had become more regular while jogging, etc. this fall. So, I have an ablation scheduled for late January of 2016 but now I am having second thoughts. The reason is that occurrences of an elevated heart rate while exercising (jogging) have seemingly gone away over the past 4to 6 weeks. Not sure why as I've gone back to drinking as much caffeine (a likely trigger in my case or so I've thought) as I used to drink, etc. I hope to finally be cross country skiing in the next couple of weeks which will be a better test. If the SVT incidents don't resume while skiing, I'm wondering whether I shouldn't cancel the ablation.
Have any of you had the symptoms appear regularly and then disappear just as quickly?
Thanks for any and all feedback.
