Finally!! A diagnosis! I have SVT and Hypoglycemia
I went to my Doctors appt. yesterday, and after looking at the results of my event monitor, he said I have SVT. I'am little confused, because when he left the room, I looked at the papers, and it said Sinus Tachycardia. Is it the same thing as SVT or could it be something different (I mean a different type of arrythmia). I have an anxiety disorder that's for sure, but I just knew there was something physical making it worse. I always thought I was Hypoglycemic, and it turns out I was right! For anyone who can answer this question: Can PMS (in my case PMDD) Hypoglycemia, and just dwelling on my heart cause my episodes of SVT and PVC's, and make them more frequent and a billion times worse?? I have GAD and Panic disorder, and wonder if it's just a vicious cycle of these problems feeding one another. Also dosen't SVT switch on and off suddenly? When I have my ''episodes'', I will wake up and think about my heart right away, I get a nervous stomach and feel my heart start to accelerate. It went up to almost 200 bpm, I took a drink of cold water along with some Xanax, I started to calm down and my heart started to slow down. It took a few minutes but it felt like an eternity. It wasn't an on/off sensation. My Doctor is having me get an Echocardiogram done at the hospital tomorrow to rule out any other problems. I'll just have to see how it goes.
