AVNRT/SVT

I am 34 and have had 2 ablations. I experience a heart rate of 100 after eating. My sister is a registered nurse and says that 100 is not fast,yet normal. I am wondering if I feel things more due to having a heart condition. I also experience SVT's, i try to stay away from alcohol and caffein. When I hav drank alcohol, in the past few years I wake up with a normal heart rate, but my heart is quivering...a halter monitor was unable to pick it up.

The true definition of tachycardia (or a fast heart rate) is > = to 100 beats/minute. If you have a history of AVNRT (a form of an SVT), having periodic episodes of a heart rate faster than this (with or without symptoms) may indicate your ablations have not cured it completely.  A holter monitor would be the best way to detect if it is truly an SVT/AVNRT as the rhythm would need to be analyzed.
