The flu



last august my mother got the flew, 2 days later she gave it to me. I felt so nauseated for a week, went to the toilet nearly passed out. then experienced a weird heart rhythm, thought it was SVT. kept starting and stopping, so went to the hospital they gave me an ecg and said it was atrial flutter. was going at 150bpm, so they put electrolytes/potassium in me they said I had a 0 level of electrolytes/potassium. gave me a small dose of metoprolol stopped the atrial flutter within an hour. of course still get my SVT, but the flutter was real scary!

so be careful when you get the flu. it nearly got me!

vagal nerve



my latest fast working method to stop SVT...fill a big glass of cold water. drink it quickly. most of the time it stops the SVT within about half a minute. been a lifesaver for me. it is vagal manoevre, but a fast acting one. I encourage you to try it!
