I'm new here and thought I'd share and see if anyone has a year kind of advice. I'm 30 and 5 year ago I started having issues where my heart would start racing for no reason. I didn't know what was going on and the first few times it didn't last that long and didn't concern me.
In 2012 though this happend and went on for over an hour at which point I drove myself to hospital. They said I was having an SVT which I'd never heard of before.
After this they also found out I had a hole in my heart which has been there since birth and I had a leaking aortic valve. I was having a bad week.
I got taken back in in April 2013 with my heart racing at nearly 200bpm
I was discharged same day. Same thing happened in 2015 in March. I refused to go to hospital cause I had an idea what caused it. Eating a Scorpion Chillie for a bet didn't help probably.
Then 2 weeks ago I nearly blacked out in work and when I got rushed to hospital my heart was racing at 220bpm. They said it was an SVT again and treated it with adenosine which calmed it down.
They kept me in and then at 3.30am the morning after apparently my heart went into VT when I was sleeping. I woke up with a lot of panic going on around me.
I'm now on tablets to stop this happening again but that last experience in hospital has freaked me out. I'm going in for an ecg in 2 weeks and have a follow up appointment in April.
Is there anything I should be doing or can do to prevent any future problem.
