A few months ago, I was sitting at my desk, watching a movie on my iMac, when all of a sudden, my heart started beating EXTREMELY fast! This happened to me prior to that time, and with a few heavy, deep breaths, I was able to get it back to normal. This time was a different story though. I couldnt get it to stop, and I got into my car and drove to the hospital. After about 30 minutes at the hospital, I finally got to see the doctor, and my pulse at the time was 235 bpm. They gave me something in my IV, which made my chest burn, and then it slowed down my heart rate. I ended up seeing two heart doctors here in the city, and they both said I had SVT, which is like an extra "highway" in my heart, that can cause my heart to beat real fast from time to time. I took some medicine for it, and I havent had an episode since, but I still get the sensation in my chest that its trying to start an episode. Today, I went to the doctor, and we decided that we are going to skip the pills, and go with a Catheter Ablation procedure, which sends a small wire from my leg, into the heart, and burns the "highway" that causes the SVT. Im curious to know if anyone else has had this procedure done before, and if so, what was your experiences with it?
