a doctor told me PVC's are stress. mine seem to go waves. for awhile I get them and then I don't. he told me to find things to keep me busy. I used to get them bad at bedtime. now I read just before sleep and its cut them right down so I'd say the doctor is right and yes I suffer from anxiety and stress which the heart reacts to

probably medication is the go for you. my mother has atrial fibrillation and she takes atenol and it works excellent. doesn't control the rhythm, but controls the speed and her high blood pressure well. she takes 75mg a day (50 in the morning, 25 at night) Penny

I have SVT too, you are safe to exercise. I use my exercise bike twice a day. in fact exercise helps it.

give it up not good for you heart and other organs like liver and kidneys. hospital told me to avoid alcohol because it can trigger SVT. they say I can drink beer moderately. also too much booze will dehydrate you severely which can upset heart rhythm and blood pressure Penny

hi everyone. I've managed to reduce my night time palpitations by lieing on my back when I sleep and not moving plus clear my mind of any stress. I used to get them nearly every night, with this method I've cut them right down and rarely get them at night now. I was diagnosed with SVT 11 years ago

I've got the same symptoms too like...heart palpitations, upset stomach, chest & throat pressure. I have a gassy drink when I get the palpitations which helps a lot..also I have difficulty in burping, so I live on gassy drinks everyday to relieve the pressure. the vagus nerve is easily irriitated by stomach ulcers which leads to heart palpitations

here is my method-I inhale in air, insert my thumb in mouth and blow hard then exhale slowly. has worked most of the time of my SVT attacks. a nurse at the hospital taught it to me, she said its the safest method...prevents hospital visits which is great
