I posted previously about 5hr attack of svt req hospital visir last weekend and had prev bern diagnosed with svt via reveal loop implant and offered ablation.
My last attack felt totally different to usual svt attacks and incredibly erratic and kept telling a&e drs it felt different and my usual svt attacks are short but can be multiple over hours. I was told i was in svt. After 5 hrs it returned to normal. My gp received report from a&e saying svt but my reveal loop recorder has said it was 5 hr attack of afib. This would explain why i had never felt svt like this before but extremely worrying that a&e drs could not tell difference!!
My cardio has been given new info and i have been told this will change the ep study i am being listed for. I have to see my gp tomorrow about this because of the implications of having attacks of afib.
At least i myself can tell the difference as svt is a regular fast flutter in chest wheras this afib felt very erratic.
So very unerved that a&e gave wrong diagnosis and also i now have 2 heart arrythmias not 1.
Feeling scared and wondered if anyone has both.
Wondering what gp will decide to do whilst i wait for ep study etc also ablation for af is much riskier.
