Theyre nothing alike. Trust me, if you ever get it you will feel it. V tach is just the ventricles beating really fast with no atrium beating at all. You will feel palpitations, and depending on how long it lasts, dizzyness, weakness, shortness of breath, passing out, or Cardiac arrest. Alot of times without a warning
