SVT~then A fib with flutter one time~ horrified!

Does anyone here ever have svt for 3 years, then went in with the pounding heart beat after 16 hr's of being horrified to call~911~ then I started to pass out, they got there and said yes, you are right, it is svt~ however by the time I got in the hospital and hour went by and they said No, right now you have a fib with a flutter~ said you never had that before...Now I was horrified~ they started a heprin drip, and made me stay all night, giving the cardezem drip or something like that, but never stopped so I got paddled the next day about 11:00am, and then had a stress test at the same day with the radioactive med and after they said it was negitive for heart valve or anything wrong and my heart was fine...Why did this happen, and now I am horrified every time I feel a few fast ones, this is the first time for all of this and I am scared to pieces... just said take an asprin every day and we will see you in 6 months! Yikes, I have terrible anxiety and take xanax for it for 18 yrs, but can't stop fearing. anyone to help even knowing someone else has this would make me feel not so alone... Why from svt to a fib? is that a typical happening or does it mean much worse? Thanks to anyone with any words or experience with this proble... :) Scardycat times a million:(

  • Hi scardycat, you are certainly not alone with these heart irregularities. It happens. I also have A-Fib, also on Warfarin, also had cardio conversion (which didn't work) also on Cardezem. that was 6 years ago, never felt better. Live your life to the fullest, worrying about it doesn't help. My best to you
