SVT: Palpitations, dizziness, chest pain, possibly black out are all possible symptoms.

Ineffective hrt beat: If your heart is beating extremely fast (as in supra-ventricular tachycardia) it has very little time to fill with blood between beats so very little blood will be pumped with every beat. As a result important organs like your brain, kidneys, liver and your heart itself will not receive the necessary amount of blood to continue functioning properly.

Many ways: Svt can be very diruptive if it occurs frequently and is symptomatic. Symptoms can include chest pain , shortness of breath, palpitations, lightheadedness. Some tolerate it well without specific treatment. Others require medications and possibly radiofrequency ablation, which is frequently curative. See your doctor for recommendations.

It shouldn't: However, it is hard to know for sure without more details. Most medications don't affect the voice, but there are many things which can impact the voice. See your local ENT or laryngologist for a full evaluation of your voice. Regardless of the cause, many vocal disorders can be improved with treatment of some kind.

Upper heart chambers: Fast heart beat due to mechanism arising from the upper chamber of the heart is known as supraventricular tachycardia. It could be due to electrical reentry (think of it as a short circuit) or increased automaticity (electrically hyperactive cells). It is amenable to treatment in most cases.
