How to prevent reoccurance of SVT?

Im a 45 yrs, housewife, having regular onsets of SVT for last 5 years. Initialy I used to get SVT once in 2 months or 3 months but for last 6 months it very frequent twice or more in a month with heart beat above 225b/min & lasts for 2 hours. I had visited Dr. one year back & asked to take beta-blockers for two months. at present Im not taking any medicine.
Last week attack was very scaring to me as symptoms were more sever that includs -
-sever palpitation with heart beat 250 b/min
-sweating & frothing
-almost unconcsious for 1 hr
-a large blood anurism(blood accumulation) on forehead which disaapeared after 4-5 Hrs
-episode last for 3 hrs
Plz advice what kind of treatment should I take to prevent reoccurance. Im not willing to take surgical treatment like ablation.

A rate of 250 bpm plus some of the symptoms you describe sounds like vtach.  

My advise is that you get a full cardiac workup ASAP and listen to their treatment plan.

When the SVT starts you can try things like valsalva maneuvers or coughing to normalize the rate before it gets out of control.  the longer you wait, the worse it will get.

I think it's very important that you get in to see a cardiologist.

p.s., I forgot to mention that VTACH is a ventricular arrhythmia.  It's not SVT.  It probably won't respond to the techniques I mentioned above.

hi
i would also seek to see a cardio or an ep for a definite diagnosis as fast as svt starts it should stop just as quickly words like almost unconcsious shows u need to have this checked and if needed some sort of meds prescribed .ablation is not as bad as it reads ,i had two for svt and have been feeling really good for mths with just the odd flip flop herre and there ..before i was getting svt attacks several times a day

take care
