Today I have been given the results of a 24h holter. My cardiologist attributes everything to anxiety (Positive point for me, it means or so I understand, that what he has found in the holter is not dangerous). Although he wants to give me medication, an anti-arrhythmic .....

I have found double-sided ventricular extrasystoles with a predominant bigeminy, trigeminy, and non-sustained homogenous TV flap.

Supraventricular extrasystoles with bigeminies, trigeminies and tpsv flap.

In ventricular extrasystoles, I have a ventricular tachycardia, and in supraventricular extrasystoles, I have had 9 supraventricular tachycardias ...

This can be from the lyme? I am afraid of having a cardiac arrest or a sudden death, although the doctor has told me that this can not happen, because they are benign ....

Has anyone had this too?

Can ventricular tachycardia be benign? I know it's relates with sudden death... and my cardiologist say that my arrythmia is benign... I'm scared, every time i feel that i think i'm going to die..

Yes, me too! I've had 3 SVT episodes over the past few years... they are very scary. The first two I went to the ER, but there was one I meditated through and it went away.

From what I understand they cannot kill you, but they are still quite unpleasant.

Sometimes I feel one "threatening" to take hold, and the things that have definitely helped stave them off are:

proper electrolytes
proper animal protein
Artemisia annua
Exercise <----------------------------------------------

Best of luck.

Not sustained ventricular tachycardia. It means only 3-5 beats but I'm scared....

And I have a lot of ectopic beats and 9 SVT.

But my cardiologist says it's not a problem. And I'm not dure of that....

I have weird heart beats. Don't know what they're called. Never been to a doc. I developed them 2 years after developing Lyme. Treating has helped but i still get them occasionally. Talk about scary. But I know what a doc is going to say... "i don't see anything wrong with you". On the other hand my conduction block that I got when I first got sick totally disappeared. So healing in some ways... not so in others...

I hope it will be reversible... ventricular tachycardia can be fatal....

But i have borrelia, bartonella and babesia.... I don't know whats doing that...

my weird beats, palpitations have all gotten better with treatment.

There are Lyme cardiologists out there, I think I have seen post about it before.

Might be something to check out, you could start a new post seeking recommendations for one.


Take care and I'm sorry you are having these symptoms. Jo
