Re: im not sure



Debbie...this sounds like supraventricular tachycardia (sp?). My daughter has it. Her heart speeds up to 150 bpm. Her dr. said she needs to either: 1. put ice bags on face 2. do the gag reflex..finger down throat 3. grunt while squatting 4. put pressure on right side of neck 10-20 seconds. This puts her heart back in sync. Check it out tho. It could still be VV.
