: thank you for your reply.
could i also ask? is atrial tachycardia the same as atrial fibrilation?
do certain things make it worse? alcohol? excercise? stress? or can it happen anytime?
i do feel that my menstrual time of the month makes a big difference.
could it disappear as quickly as it came?
the first time i had a fast heart beat it was after taking a cold remedy. they took all sorts of tests but never came up with anything. it was put down to a virus! i spent four days in hospital then was told rest and carry on as normal. could this have been the start of it? but they never noticed it?
i look forward to your reply.
