1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Svt is usually not a life threatening condition.
Treatment is usually based on symptomsespecially if the heart is otherwise normal . If svt is long lived , the heart can sometimes suffer damage ( due to fast heart rates for weeks/months), although this is not very common. See you doctor asap to determine a treatment plan.
