Tachycardia means a rapid heart rate of more than 100 beats per minute. Supraventricular means the problem starts in the upper part of your heart, above your ventricles (the lower chambers of your heart). If you have SVT, your heart may beat at a rate of about 140 to 250 beats per minute.

SVT episodes usually don't last long and go away on their own without any treatment. They often happen in young, healthy people. You will usually get fewer episodes of SVT as you get older, but you may find that the symptoms get worse. How long an episode lasts can vary from a few seconds or minutes, to several hours.

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) doesn't always cause symptoms but you’re more likely to have symptoms if you already have heart disease.
Symptoms you may get during an episode of SVT include:
being aware of your heart suddenly beating faster (heart palpitations)
feeling dizzy
feeling short of breath
chest pain
fainting 
These symptoms may be caused by problems other than SVT.
You may need to have a test called an ECG. An ECG records the electrical activity in your heart to see how well it's working. 
ECHO - This test uses ultrasound to provide a clear image of your heart muscles and valves and can show how well your heart is working. 
you can take antiarrhythmic medicines by doctor.
These include beta-blockers, calcium-channel blockers and antiarrhythmic medicines. You can also take them to prevent further SVT episodes.

Hello doctor, I never had any heart problems in my entire life. But before some months my closet friend passed away by heart attack and he was smoker. I was very depressed because of that and few days later I was very disturbed & depressed because some personal issues and I was thinking about that friend it was like phobia I also smoked too much cigarettes on that day suddenly my heart started beating abnormally and I started feeling abnormal. Doctors scanned my heart and they found WPW syndrome so some doctors advised me to operate and some suggested to avoid surgery because it was symptomatic. What is your opinion. Thanking you.

No 1 you are having panic phobia. 2. Stop smoking immediately. Otherwise you will have same fate. As you know smoikg is a killing factor for not only heart but also bronchitis asthma & important is cancer. Wpw syndrome may be relieved after stopping of smoking. You need not undergo surgery now. First stop smoking & then after 3 months you go for heart check up.

1. It could be due to inadequate sleep, stress/anxiety, hypertension. 2. Get your bp checked 3. If it is a recurrent probem, you may have to take a ct scan of brain to exclude organic brain disease after consulting neurologist.

ESR on its own doesnot signify any thing. unless it is accompanied by other feature we do not attach any importance to it. it has only prognostic significance than diagnostic significance. so donot worry and leave it.

My father (age 59) had to undergo a sudden operation on 10 March 2014 due to complaint of sudden sever pain in heart and cheast. When rushed to the hospital in an unbearable pain doctors investigated and found that my father's has experienced an aorta bust (He was diagnosed of Acute Type B Aortic Dissection). Therefore he was operated and 2 stents were grafted to control the situation. After this operation with 24 hours he experienced another series of uncontrolable pain in his back bone and lower limbs, the doctors post examination after few hours operated him again. This operation was done on the back bone as the doctors found out that the Cerebrospinal fluid was not floing to the lower limbs properly as well as a blood clot was observed in the lower end of the spinal cod which the doctors said was cleaned during the operation. The doctors diagnosed it to be paraplegia and said that the operation will revers the situation and he (my father ) will have normal life after the opration without any paralytic/ heart complications. Few days after the operation he ws released from the hospital with a urinal tube and a bag which the doctors said will be removed shortly, Today it is exactly 11 months that he has no sense for urine of stool as a result of which he has to stay in diapers all day long and is really struggling with his situation. I will be really oblidged if some solution/cure/ help/ recommendation is given to us to improve his situation. Thanks in advance. Kind Regards

My dad is 60 years old. He had heart problem 10 years back. Now he is alright. His legs have swollen now n he is anemic too. We r planning to go to Ooty next week. Is it advisable for him to travel to a hill station? Some say that the oxygen level differs and so he shouldn't travel to hill station as of now. Is it?

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Sir kya heart blockage medicine se bhi khul sakti hai or kitne percentage tak ho to.
No, there is no medicine to open blockages, though some people clain that pomegranate juice helps, sure it does help but it is the numerous collateral vessels lying low, get opened up, it is like nature has done bypass surgery using blood vessels of the heart. Do not ignore symptoms if any with the hope that new blood vessels will open up, they do, provided there are no symptoms like pain and breathlessness.

A type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down. The wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) occurs gradually and worsens over time. Joint pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees or hips is the most common symptom. Homeopathy helps to slow down the process of joint pain & also gives a long term relief in pain without side effects. Dr. raj bonde.

For your age it's borderline high. Don't worry. Just avoid salt and salty oily fried foods. Take plenty of water. Eat good amount of fruits, green leafy vegetables and salads. Do brisk walk daily for 45 mins.
