About Me: Female, 29, London, United Kingdom, member since Jul 2012
i am a 26 year old female, living in London! I like doing all the usual things, but i want to beable to do activities without worrying about the old ticker! I have suffered from palpitations and svt since i was a young child. But unfortunately when i went to see my old
[More] gp as a child my ecg was found to be abnormal, but nothing was really done about it other then being told to lower caffine,etc. So earlier this year i decided that actually these palpitations and fatigue can't be normal and i made an appointment with my current gp. Basically i have been diagnosed with WPW SVT. I am going to have an ablation on the 14th September. This forum has been a huge help and i hope i can also help other people on here with similar experiences.
Hi glad you're feeling better yes being tired played a major role in how my heart felt and acted, still does but not as much. The best advice I can give you is to get a good nights sleep that seemed to help and try to limit sugar and caffeine they also had effects
Glad you are able to do more. Hope you have a good day at work on Monday. I haven't been sleeping very well. But apart from being tired due to that I'm pretty good now. I'm looking foward to building up my fitness. I get a few odd heartbeats but mostly I'm not noticing my heart at all.
I'm not even sure when my checkup is-I have to contact my local Dr and find out.
I could relate to how you felt about starting to be able to do normal things. I was so happy with my first housework. I made a whole week at work. I was pretty tired towards the end of the week but I got there.Rather proud of myself.
I find as long as I don't overdo things I feel pretty good. Looking foward to getting fit again. I think I'll build up to it gradually. My leg still aches a bit sometimes and the bruise is still there. Takes a while to heal, I guess.
Some days i get a few funny heartbeats. It seems to be more if I'm tired or I've done a lot.
My chest is still a bit tender but mostly okay.
I think my husband is getting tired of my grumbles about the tiredness and aches and pains now. He just wants his old wife back. i do too.
