Can Anxiety disorder cause SVT, or something something similar?I felt a fluttering in my chest, which felt like PVCs normally feel. I checked my pulse and the rhythm was one normal beat followed by about six fast (weaker) beats. It went through that cycle maybe 2 or three times. I had a stress echo done a few months ago, and a EKG. Those turned out normal.

Hello. I'm Dr Chip

Ask Your Own Cardiology Question

Why did you have the stress echo and the EKG?

Ask Your Own Cardiology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
For chest pain and palpitations.

Were the palpitations captured on the EKG? Were they premature atrial contractions?

Ask Your Own Cardiology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
They caught a few palpitations, but not like the episode I described above. I think they were PVCs.

Sorry for all the questions

Yes, anxiety can trigger a run of SVT but so can potassium or magnesium imbalances in the blood or things like caffeine

SVT isn't dangerous but obviously bothersome

You need to see your doctor for blood work, another EKG and a Holter monitor to attempt to capture this if it occurs again. If it becomes a problem a low dose beta blocker like propranolol can treat it

Please let me know if you need any more information

Are the symptoms described associated with SVT?.. Can VT be ruled out?

Sorry--what symptoms. All you mentioned was the short run of a rapid pulse

Ask Your Own Cardiology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The fluttering feeling in chest, while having the runs of rapid pulse.

That's typical of SVT

And with a previously normal EKG you'd have no risk for having VT
