Heart Dr. says I have Supraventricular tachycardia, or paroxysmal SVT,I have been noticing irregular heartbeats off & on this week especially while at rest but have no other smytoms? I'm on metoprolol er 50mg & a potassium pill at 20mg was wondering what could cause them also was wondering how to make them go away? Dr doesn't seem to concern! I seen him a couple weeks ago! I'm 33 & overweight & do have sleep apnea so was wondering if that had to do with it! Also I had heart surgery when 3 yr old on Arotic Valve? Some come & go but others last a fees mins longer! Thanks!
I don't have SVT but I have PVC and PAC(wich are other types of arrhythmia) I understand how you feel that is how Dr are I guess they have seen so much that unless you're having serious issues they are not to concern. Arrithmias are irregular beatings or contractions many people have them but they don't fee them other like us do. I try metropolol it work for some time and latter have to switch to something else I still on potassium. I being so many times in the hospital because palpitations and irregular heart beat that last time I was there they almost kicked me out. Try to keep hydrated it helps and as hard as must be try not to panic or be stressed when you have palpitations it just makes them worst. I hope you feel better.
