About Me: Female, Pineville, KY, member since May 2011
I was diagnosed with SVT in 2008 and have been living a restricted life since. I don't have insurance therefore I cannot proceed with the tests that I need to have done. I have read all kinds of articles on SVT but never can shake the feeling that this is not life-threa
[More]tening. I have experienced so many scary episodes with my heart. It has really taken over my life. I walk in walmart with so much anxiety that sometimes I have to walk back out. I am so afraid of having another episode. I have only had about 5 actually bad episodes that took a while to regulate. But I feel like my experiences are more than what I have read. My heart starts out fluttering, feels like its skipping, flopping, and not beating regular at all. Its fast beats but it dont feel like its actually beating... more of a twitching. Its hard to explain. But long story short I am scared that this is more complicated than wallking into a cardiologists office, him looking at a ekg, and telling me I have SVT when no real tests have been taken. I need to know if anyone else has SVT episodes the way that I do. Or if you all think it is something different.
