    Svt caused by bowel issues

    Hi all
    For over 2 years now I've been having these "episodes" where just before a bowel movement I start to feel really odd and then I begin to sweat, shake and my heart rate suddenly goes up to 165 bpm. This use to happen very occasionally but now it is almost daily. I have been to numerous doctors, gastro docs and cardiologists, no one has any idea why the bm can be triggering this reaction although vagus nerve has been mentioned. Cardiologist has put me on betablocker as pip but wants me to go on them permanently or have an ablation.
    It's terrifying when it happens and I'm missing a lot of days at my new job because of it. I have tried gluten free, dairy free and various diets but nothing seems to help.
    Any suggestions please? I'm desperate and afraid to do anything in case it happens.
    Sorry just one more thing, gas seems to be involved because when I feel gas shift in my body then my heart rste comes down.
    Thank you for reading x

    Yup the vegus nerve. This happened to my ex as well but his just went away on its own in time.

    Hi Nicola
    Really? It just stopped happening without him doing anything in particular?
    Do you know if it happened for a long time?
    I'm desperate. Thanks

    It didn't happen for long no and once they checked his heart out and told him he was fine I think he just kind of forgot about it.

    They did tell him not to drink so much coffee though!
