Yesterday I was braiding my hair when I started to feel my heart rate rise. This normally happens when I braide my hair. But then I went to walk to my room and I collapsed on the ground! Out of no where! I hadn’t even felt dizzy before it! Luckily I didn’t black out, so I got to my bed and checked my heart rate. It was 243! I’ve never seen it so that before. But I had a GI appointment that afternoon so I got up, grabbed my cane, and went to my car. I drove myself to the appointment and went through everything. Towards the end of the appointment, my GI doctor told me to go to the ER directly afterwards to see my heart.
Apperently I was having a SVT attack. They rushed me to the emergency room and started doing so many different things. I felt like I was in a doctor show! Luckily they got it under control and I’m feeling much better today.
I thought I had pots for years, but I haven’t been tested for it yet. Does anyone with ehlers Fans los Syndrom or POTS have any experiences with SVT or SVT attacks? I’m going to meet with a cardiologist soon, but wanted to see what you all thought while I wait.
