NSVT issues again
Hello again everyone,
I have been having a few issues with NSVT in the past and have spoken about it on this forum in the past. Back in october I had a treadmill test which showed a short 7 beat episode of Non-Sustained VT. This was quite worrying for me, as an anxious 17 year old. And I have been closely monitored since.
I have had a new pacemaker implanted since (in january) and we expected this to help calm the situation. I have been having palpitations everyday for a long time now, and was given a ZioPatch monitor to wear for 2 weeks. The results came back and i have had a few episodes of 4 beat NSVT.
This has really increased my anxiety and I am not feeling too great at all. the hospital have said they don't want to change my medication or anything at the moment (80mg nadolol). But I am becoming worried because I was told there could be 2 causes- 1) the old pacemaker was causing some issues that can cause NSVT or 2)there is a development of my condition (my condition is 3rd degree congenital heart block). as i no longer have the old pacemaker i'm worrying about what this 2nd option could mean for me.
Does anyone else know anything about the causes or effects of NSVT in a structurally normal heart but 3rd degree heart block present. I also have >1% of my heartbeats as PVCs according to the monitor, this is reassuring.
I have been given lots of information on this in the past, but as this is still happening i feel my mental health if being quite heavily effected.
Thank you to anyone reading this,
