I have wolf-parkinson-white syndrome with an svt. would this cause chest pain? if so would the pain be caused by an "episode"?

WPW: Wpw is associated with svt and svt can certainly be symptomatic with chest pain. The pain would be related to the "episode". When folks have this we often have an electrophysiologist ablate the bypass tract to attempt to substantially cure the problem.
