There are a number of underlying causes for LBBB. Think of LBBB as a symptom to something else. If you're experiencing the feelings noted above, this is a sign that it COULD be a more serious situation. Typically, when LBBB is observed, other tests are administered to find the underlying cause. If your hospital ER's in the UK are like ours, they...

I tried to explained the 2 most common forms of SVT, above. It's often difficult to determine which kind of SVT you have. But the symptoms are the same. Dude, you don't need to "practice" for any kind of stress test. Have you ever taken one? They wire you up to an EKG recorder , you step onto a treadmill and they administer the Br...

Do these episodes gradually build in speed, or do they seem to start and end suddenly?

I'm sure that if you've done some reading, that you know how important it is to determine what kind of ER you have. I would definitely let a cardiologist make that call.

....So I checked out your profile. If you smoke, STOP! If you're smoking, you have bigger problems than SVT....!! If you consume coffee, tea, or colas, switch to decaf. Caffeine is a big trigger for SVT. AVNRT is the more common SVT followed by AVRT. AVNRT is more common in females than in males AVRT is more common in males than females.

"One other thing I'm super worried about now is heart disease...." ABSOLUTELY NO! This is most likely an electrical issue within the heart and is in no way heart disease. Many professional athletes have had this problem. At one point in my life, I had a superbly conditioned heart, yet I was experiencing extended episodes of SVT up to 3 ti...

Who has SVT (PSVT) and how long have you had it? I had it for 54 years; from 6 to 60. Did you get ablation? I did. I had it in 2010 after the BB failed miserably. The procedure was a success, and I'm free after a lifetime of it. Have you tried beta blockers for it? Yes, towards the end. I was un-medicated most of my life because I was invol...

Please take the advice of the post above. Let's do a little math: Let's take 4 PVC's a minute for 24 hours = 5,760 per day. Most cardiologists will wave you off if you turn in results such as that. A few dozen PVC"s a day is absolutely nothing to worry about. Take the advice of itdood, and treat your anxiety issues. You may find that...

I don't think there's one of us here that had an ablation for SVT, and never felt another thing afterwards. We ALL had some bumps in the road during our recovery. You may feel this for up to and beyond a year. I had a week of severe jumbled up SVT and PVC's 8 months after mine. I had never experienced anything like it in my 54 year of deali...

I have nothing to report with mine that I would associate with effects from anesthesia, I had general anesthesia for mine. Very nice! Sorry....
