[Hi everyone--Rob here (Wotan--don't ask me how I got that crazy nickname--in college)-

Anyway--many of you..know...I have been posting here--for years-!

OK---I will try to make this "short & sweet"-

I do get "runs"...of SVT--I;ve had MORE cardio tests--than you can imagine--must have had--over the last 10 yrs..(no exageration)-- 12-14 "Event monitors"-plus--echo cardiograms....stress with isotope--!

Anyway--often get extra beats AND...what scares me."runs"...of SVT--(sometimes..6.7 or 8 beats) Only med I am on for this-is 25 mg Tenormin--

HERE is my question--I HOPE...I get ast least,,2 or 3 responses..(Ilve ASKED cardios..they just shrug)

Last 4 yrs or so--from time to time---when I get this extra beat-I feel..like an "electric shock"...sensation---in ,my heart--like a "current of electricty"--! (AND.."NO"..I do NOT have any pacemaker--just feels like an 'electric current")--Two different cardios..just say.."People present with all different kinda symptoms"--!
OK...has ...ANYONE here...experienced..ANYTHING like this..? Getting ready for bed--& I hope..by tomorrow....I will have ..like I said...2 or 3 responses--I HATE feeling "alone"..with this--! WHAST could this..BE..? smhair

In searching for any other members who might have had a problem similar to your's I found this:

"OK--I do NEED a few people to help me w this--so i know i'm not alone in some "strange" heart sensation--that no Dr. has ever heard of--
  Just have had it 2 or 3 times in past month.     During one of my MANY irregular beats ( a premature beat etc.) when suddenly I feel a "fleeting" sensation of am "electric shock" type of sensation in my heart.     Just lasts a split second!   Not.."pain",...in a conventional way----just a "shock" sensation!         Could it be the strength of the irregular beat--?  Or perhaps a true "electical impulse"?
  And---has ANYONE---anyone , out there ever felt anything like this?
BTW-- i hav had...EVERY HEART test---there is---ekg, stress ekg w isotope.....echo--stress echo---event monotor----------only thing diagnosed is...SVT-----HOPING to hear from some people about this?  Thanks--Robert "

I do not have any personal knowledge of what you are experiencing but perhaps someone wiser than me will have some great input for you.
If you have been having these sensations for 7 years - I am wondering if perhaps it is anxiety but remember I am not a physician.

Hi there,
its funny that you should mention that you feel an electric shock sensation because I get that when I have short runs of SVT!
ill feel the Zap then 5-6 beats of SVT.
I normally get tons of PVC's, but also have these short runs of SVT and also NSVT!
Im just glad someone mentioned the electric shock feeling as I don't feel as if im going insane!! lol!
No doctor I know had any idea what I was talking about!
I think we all feel things different! Sometimes my PVC's can fell like shocks too.
Take care :-)

Thanks Miss Spice bomb--you "hit the nail on the head"--!

Short runs..of SVT--along WITH short runs..of SVT--

The cardio did tell me--"Different people feel different things"-

Basically..2 cardios told me...they really do not know..the "why"..of these feelings--

But--thanks, "Miss Spice Bomb"--I, too, Feel...I a not alone--!

Anyone else get these feelings..?
