Is An Episode Of Svt The Same As A Heart Attack
Not a heart attack: Supraventricular tachycardia (svt) is a rapid heart rate of 150 beats per minute, or higher. It is not a heart attack. A patient may feel he has a pounding heart (while not exercising). He may also be short of breath, breathing fast, feeling dizzy, and sometimes faint. If he has these symptoms for the first time, he should not drive himself to the hospital, but should call 911 for an ambulance. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have another SVT  in total plus i hav had a heart attack in be tween these episodes .This last one 5 days ago has left me feeling very anxious , ?
If you have blockage: These very fast rhythms don't generally cause the more common type of heart attack (sudden blockage) but if the plumbing is already well gunked up, the pipes (arteries) may not be able to supply enough blood to keep up with very high rates (>180/min) and in those cases, we see minor heart damage called "demand ischemia." at 37, i wouldn't expect that to be a problem for you. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have been having episodes of chest pain, skipping in the night, nausea, can't sleep, very fatigue. I think I have coronary artery disease i'm terrified a heart attack is imminent. How would i know?
See your family doc: It sounds more gastric or. Esophageal to me. See your family doctor and have appropriate tests run . A ct scan of your coronary arteries is a non- invasive way to check your coronary arteries. Also, a GI doc can check you for gastric and esophageal causes. I would also add in sleep apnea into the differential diagnosis due to skipped beats, anxiety or depression insomnia and daytime tiredness. Good luck to you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Risk factors...: Risk factors for heart attack include: smoking, uncontrolled hypertension, uncontrolled cholesterol, sedentary lifestyle. Males and post-menopausal females are at higher risk as well as family history of a heart attack at a younger age. Diabetes was always thought of as a risk factor but new evidence suggests that well-controlled diabetes is probably not a risk factor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Heart Attack Pain: Pain from a heart attack can vary from severe to not really having pain, like in the case of some diabetics. Typical pain of a heart attack is pressure to the chest, aching pain to the left arm and/or the jaw.
