I Was Diagnosed With Supraventricular Tachycardia

i am 18 years old and have a 13 month old daughter. long story short i had a horrible delivery that caused several health problems, one of which being supraventricular tachycardia. my dactors keep telling me that it is becaused i am stressed. yes, i am stressed alot but i feel like there is something else going on. last week i started getting twitching in my neck, tingling in my fingers and pain underneath my sternum. i get these symptoms atleast 3 times a minute and more when i am stressed my doctor doesnt think these symptoms are abnormal. so frustrating.

God bless you babe. Its tough, but keep looking to your baby girl for strength. <3

Yeah, my doctor says it can happen from stress. I also have svt. However i find that if you are calm when your heart rate is so high the "episode" doesnt last as long and you feel better. My symptoms are rapid heart rate up to 240 beats a min. My left hand feels numb and its hard to breath. Sometimes i feel i will pass out. My doctor didnt think i was serious. She said everything looked fine until we caught an episode on a heart monitor. I already had heart surgery when I was 13. Life can suck, but what can you do? I am 15.
