Chest pressure/tightness

Since I was diagnosed with svt I haven't had a full on episode. I've felt like it was about to hapoen but it stopped.

I've woken up 2 days now with chest pressure/tightness & I'm very aware my heart is beating (feel it in my higher chest & throat) but my heart rate is normal.

I've tried the things the dr said to try & get rid of it but its not working. Any suggestions?

I'm taking bisoprolol but I assumed it would stop me feeling like this. Since being diagnosed I've felt rubbish I know I'm more aware of it now but I just want to feel ok on a daily basis. Does everyone else feel like this?

I've not actually seen a heart dr just a dr on acute medical unit, so didn't have time for questions :(

I am seeing my gp tomorrow so hopefully can get some answers.

Hi am new to all this so only speaking from personal experience but just been diagnosed with either IST or Atrial fibrillation.....specialist not sure. Am about to start Bisoprol but often I experience tightness of chest with severe pain. I asked specialist about it and he said it's caused by heart going very fast. Good luck.
