I was diagnosed with V-Tach in 1999, at the age of 31, after being rushed by ambulance to the ER with my heart beating 200 times a minute.  Since then, I have gone through some mild episodes and one more serious one.  I have a defibrillator / pacemaker implant and my heart has been shocked more times than I care to think about.  I was hoping that the specialist would make a second attempt at trying to stop this heart condition but he does not want to.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about this condition and what it has done to me.  Before being diagnosed, I had never even heard of it.  I have since developed anxiety issues because of this.
Is there anyone here that has this condition and wants to share their experience with me?

Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am sorry to read of your problem with V-tach but you do have the implanted defib/pacemaker.  I know we have some members with this same device so hopefully you will be hearing from them.
Are you on any medications for your V-Tach ?
