Question: More than V-tach?

 BmwMan - Wed Dec 03, 2003 11:12 am

I am a 18 yr old male. about 10 months ago i was told that i have Venticular Tachycardia, lasting around 7-11 beats. but i have other symptoms that worry me, such as, arm and chest pains, dizzyness, tiredness, "gurgle" type feelings near heart and shortness of breath.
i Get a V-tach on averge twice a week, but sometimes its worse then other times. one day i could have 9-10 v-tachs and the next day none or one. for a month i did not have any,. then out of nowhere i would have 4 or 5.
I am worried that i have more then just V.T., what about Heart valve disease? or Coronary artery diesase?
my doctors don't see me anymore because they think that the problem isnt bad enough to treat. and i am on no medication. what should i do?

User avatar Bmwman,
V-tach always creates anxiety. I am sure that your doctors have excluded both valve and coronary diseases. If you feel that your condition is worsening you should seek another checkup since the last one is 10 months ago. Unfortunately I am in no condition to tell you not to worry about it but it does seem to be anxiety thats the problem more than anything else.

Best regards,
