Hello and hope you are doing well.
Understand your predicament. Supraventricular tachycardia often occurs in episodes with stretches of normal rhythm in between. When tachycardia occurs, it is usually referred to as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. When these shifts happen, you must be perceiving the skipping or stopping of the heart beat. If the functional status of the heart is good, then no further therapy is required. If its unresponsive to medical therapy, then catheter ablation is done. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
39 male from the UK and i suffer from this strange affliction. It always happens when I'm just about to fall asleep and it feels like my heart as just stopped, with like a massive punch to the chest. Ive been to the doctors many times too and they say the same shite.. Its a scary feeling and i wish i could record it on some monitor to show the doctor as proof because to me it feels very real and life threatening..
thanks to everyone for your posts. I'm going to give up caffeine and fags and see if that makes a difference.
cheers matt kain xx
