Re: psvt in an 11 year old child
I agree with lltomich.
I developed PSVT as a teen, around 50 years ago. It would come on suddenly, my heart would pause, what seemed like forever, I would feel like I was passing out, and then with a big thump it would thump, thump, thump, thump, thump
around 160 times per minute! It would usually happen while I was smoking, or when I was in a room where others were smoking
As I got older, the PSVT became more frequent and lasted longer. Stupidly, I kept on smoking!
The ongoing stress of PSVT on my heart caused my heart to slowly weaken and stretch out, and eventually led to the nightmare that I have suffered over the past 23+ years, Heart Failure!
So.... when I hear about someone like lltomich finding something that "cures" PSVT, I applaud both her and the new surgical technique; and hope that others will heed her advice.
