Well i have been suffering since i was 17 iam now 46 and had a really bad attack two days ago which has left me drained
My first one was when i was 17 i was in the hairdressers having streaks put in my hair when the hairdresser accidently caught a mole on the side off my head with the hook she was using therefor after that for many years i thought it was panick attacks i was having and i just called them pallpy attacks !
I have had many more nasty experiances with them but wont go on iam sure everybody who suffers knows
Infact many ocasions when i have had SVT it has been because off some panick or other eg: enclosed spaces etc but in saying that i also have them when iam in bed relaxing or just sitting watching TV.
I had a major one just after an operation and by that time i knew what it was so when i came round from anastetic i told the staff not to worry as it was SVT !
I used to get them one in a blue moon but have recently realised they are becoming a lot more frequent and iam tiring off them now .
I need to ask people some questions and would apreciate some input as iam going to the docs on monday as iam seriously considering the abilation i was offered 3yrs ago but refused as i was scared.
Does anybody (after a severe attack ) need to pass lots off urine ? is this because every organ is worked harder during an attack ? thats the only reason i can think off
also i have found for days after an attack (even although the worst off the svt is over i still have mild flutters ) i burp lots which seems to help put my heart rate back to normal.
I started a new job and on new yrs day whilst at work i took a major attack and apart from the humilation and embarasment i just felt i have had enough as i had to walk home whilst in the middle off it and i was worth nothing by the time i got home
I couldt lift a finger all day as i was totally tired out
At some stages i was able to controll it with breathing in and holding then slowly breathing out or pinching my nostrils etc lol tried and tested every method known but these no longer seem to work !
Iam terafied off the operation but will seriously have to consider it now , iam taking inderell LA but these have no effect either.
Thank you for reading
