Does an panic attack cause a abrupt increase in heart rate, 107 to 180? Cardio said it wasn't SVT cause the P waves were seen. Calling it Sinus Taych

It definitely. Can cause an elevated heart rate. 180s is high but can still be sinus tachycardia. Question is if you are having contuing inappropriate sinus tachycardia. Use of a Holter heart monitor could be beneficial.

Heart rate of 180 has been recorded on EKG, twice now. Thought SVT but not, P waves are present. Calling it ST/ panic attacks. I'm not buying it!! ?

P waves and SVT. P waves can be present with an SVT that isn't sinus tach but if you have an ECG that shows sinus tach then.. Well you've kinda got your diagnosis. It is unusual though and while I don't usually suggest something like this it would be worthwhile to have a cardiologist take a closer look (assuming that hasn't happened already). . Read more...
SVT. A rate of 180 with p waves preceding the QRS in a 1:1 fashion would be either SVT or Sinus tach depending on the situation. If during exercise or physiologic stress then likely ST, if at rest and not part of a panic attack, then SVT more likely. You don't have to buy the diagnoses but they are basically as I outlined. There are esoteric exceptions but not for this space. Read more...

See a doctor. You should get referred to a neurologist for an evaluation. Cluster or migraine headaches can cause pain on one side of the head. There may be other causes as well. Your panic attacks may be related to the pain. See your primary care or mental health provider for an assessment and treatment of them. Read more...

No. But you need to control the panic attacks as they are a very serious condition that will probably require help. Seek help as you may not be able to control them yourself. Counseling, relaxation techniques and medications may be all needed. Please do it soon since panic attacks can take over your life. Read more...
