I was recently diagnoned as having paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia after a lengthy period of flu llike symptoms, odd heart beat, dizziness, chest pains, tingling in hands and near blackouts.
These symptoms have subsided and have largely not returned though still get the odd chest pain and tingle. I am currently not taking any medication though was on Ativan for a brief period.
I recently returned to my doctor to follow up on this and discuss whether this could be related to anxiety (ie. workplace stresses) and he seems to agree. I have a normal sinus rhythm but my EKG initally showed a left atrial abnormality and now shows a septal infarction. Bloodwork is very good.
I am now sheduled for an echocardiogram and my doctor seems confident it wil show no signs of heart disease but I am shocked how anxiety could have made me so ill and manifest itself on my EKG as it has.
Anyone got a clue about this? Should I be concerned or seek alternative employment (stupid question hahaha...)
