Hi! My first time posting. I have a question about SVT(Superventricular Tachycardia). Anyone know anything about it? I have been seeing a cardiologist for 3 years for this. My symptoms are a tightening in my chest, then my arms go numb from fingertips to shoulders or to my elbows and I kinda zone out. My heartrate is really fast. And it's periodically. This last time( 1 week ago), I was just sitting on my computer and playing a card game. No stress or anxiety. Just relaxed.

When I look up the symptoms,it doesn't list any numbness. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same thing. My cardiologist isn't concerned right now because it's sporadic but I do see him once a year.

Thanks for your time!!
