SVT ATTACKS
I am a 21 year old yound woman who suffers from SVT attacks. i have had them since i was younger but only ever been diagnosed when i fainted at work march 2009. I have episodes every so often and no one seems to have a reason why. I have recently stopped drinking alcohol and have a much healthier diet eating fresh fish,fruit and veg. If anyone has any ideas of how to prevent these attacks or to stop them happening it would be great to hear them. THANKS

Do you have a heart doctor? I have SVT to and just recently had a Cardiac Ablation which is where they go in and find the abnormal area causing the SVT and they burn the abnormal tissue to stop it. So far so good, I had it done about 3 weeks ago. You might ask your doctor about it, be sure to cut back on caffeine as well.

I was prescribed Amiodarone for SVTs. After being monitored and knowing of the side effects, I chose to stop taking it after 9 months.  But still, the attacks have not returned.  Taking the drug for those 9 months helped to stop them. I feel a skipped beat every now and then, but not the episodes that would take my breath away and make me feel dizzy and lightheaded. Do some research and follow up with a cardiologist.  Take care.
