Lithotripsy, SVT, Seizures

Hello Everyone, I was hoping to use this site to get some answers. About three years ago I had a lithotripsy procedure. I woke up and was admitted to the ICU Cardiac Unit. I had no prior heart or health issues other than kidney stones. My records noted "heart changes" and that was it. My heart rate bounced back and forth from 30 to over 140. Once released from the hospital and started to move (go up stairs, walk, etc.) my heart rate would go over 225+. I was told that I had an SVT and had to get a cardiac ablation. It was suggested that the lithotripsy procedure affected the electrical function of my heart. I continue to have arrhythmias and feel my heart has definately changed.

Since this procedure I have also started to have sleep issues but no one really paid attention to my complaints. It got so bad that on some nights I wake every 20 or so minutes. I went through some testing and it revealed that I am having seizures during sleep only.

I know the brain is also an organ that is operated by electrical flow.

Question: Has anyone heard or experienced SVT or seizures following lithotripsy?

Thank you!!!!!
