: : hi-i am new to this board and find it very interesting and helpful, i too have suffered with SVT ---i am a 35 yr. old female and i have had SVT since i was 13, only to be finally dignosed 8 years ago,i can remember when i was a child i was outside playing and all of a sudden my heart would go fast that i had to lay down right there and wait for it to slow down,as a kid i didnt much let it bother me but as i grew older i started to worry. About 10 years ago i was really having a bad time, in and out of er and dr.s offices continuly. But i didnt get much help. anyway to try to make this alittle shorter i will tell you where i am at now--i havent had the fast heart rate (400+) in about 7 yrs (thank god). i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, mysofascile pain about 5 yrs ago. other than the pain and fatigue that i have with that i still experience the same symptoms i have exp. all of my life with svt and i am just wondering if anyone out there has the same symptoms---if wake up at 8 am , around 4pm or so, i get extremely exhausted, then if i lay down for a nap and i cant fall asleep within 5 minutes of the time that i feel exhausted, my heart feels like it is in my throat, i am weak and my brain cant function. and i feel this way til its time to go to bed for the evening in which i have to take something to fall asleep or else i am up allnight with my heart in my throat and feeling totally exhausted mentally and physically.I am sorry this is so long, no one seems to understand, i just hope someone out there can understand this and help me---i try to work full time but it is so hard to do when i constantly feel mentally and phs. exhausted--thanks everyone for taking the time to read this and feel free to email me

re:Joyce and Abbey,
The two of you are not alone. I am 42 and have SVT and Fibromyalgia and Trigeminal Neuralgia (Pain in the Nerve in the side of the face) I had not heard of the association of neurologic injuries. Thanks for mentioning it. I am currently using Trileptal to help with the nerve problem. It doesn't get rid of the pain, but it does make it bareable enough to get some sleep. My cardiologists wants to put me on Tambocor for the SVT, have either of you tried it? Has anyone out there tried anything else?
