Thank you very much



Sorry poor boy not a pleasant experience

For a teenager: I had svt from 19 years

After years of doc saying it was nerves I turned up at A&E : they admitted me for a week and tests revealed svt lasted 2/3 hours 285 pulse : was controlled after with verapamil but recently developed pvcs and bigimy meds changed to bisoprolo and helping a lot Cardiio said as long as heart healthy no risk to health from thousands of these things a day have had

Tests to confirm heart sound just wonky electrical signals

Don’t understand why your doc would say son at risk of stroke ect that’s a worry
