I can empathize with your situation completely. At around age 26, I had been running 3 miles a day - the epitome of great health - then my heart went into tachycardia one day, and as far as I am concerned, my health went downhill after that. I am now 42, and I have been diagnosed with SVT. I have been on Kerlone for 4 years now, and today I went back to my cardiologist due to "breakthroughs" in the meds. Now, instead of the racing, I feel a "thump" like my heart is stopping. He is now putting me on Toprol, and once again, I am so leary of going on meds. But what is the alternative? To feel like you are going to die from these arryhthmias all during the day? I also am susceptible to panic attacks and anxiety, but these palpitations come out of the blue, whether there is anxiety or not. I, too believe there is an hormonal element to all these palpitations, as I have experienced a cluster of palpitations around ovulation. I am so in tune with my body, that I can sometimes feel ahead of time when a palpitation is coming on - it is really strange. There is also a weird fluttering in my diaphragm sometimes - I sit there and want to scream about finding a cause for all these palpitations! I too, worry about being out somewhere - shopping, driving, traveling - and having one of these episodes hit-will it be so serious that I pass out in my car?? Will I need to go to the hospital? I have also noticed a tendency towards hypoglycemia and a greater intolerance for heat and cold. I don't wish this on anybody, but it is somewhat comforting to know I am not the only one out there feeling like this. Does anyone know if taking magnesium and/or Co-Enzyme Q10 supplements helps at all?
