SVT HELP!

I'm twenty years old and I have had two ablations  my first one at 17 and my second one at 18 and still have rather severe episodes. They keep me up at night, I black out in the shower, I work in a hospital and I will check my heart rate when I am sitting and doing charting and it will be 190-250. I go numb in my upper limbs when I have severe chest pain for it and it not a once a month or once a week thing. It happens almost every day. Often it brings me to tears the pain can be so bad. I just do not know where to go from here. I do not want to go through another ablation when the first two were so unsuccessful. Any suggestions? I just want to live a normal 20 year old life.

Hi, For patients whose PSVT is not well-tolerated or not easily broken, either catheter ablation or chronic drug therapy may be appropriate. According to studies done, for AV node-dependent PSVT, calcium channel blockers and β-adrenergic blockers will improve symptoms in 60% to 80% of patients. Since your arrhythmia is not controlled with ablation check with your doctor regarding long term pharmacologic therapy. Regards.
