Is anyone out there riding with arrhythmia issues like tachycardia? I would like to find out how you manage it? Anti-arrhythmia medication? I was told if I have an event while exercising, I need to try to get a normal rhythm back before continuing exercise or call SAG. Not always easy and often inconvenient for me and my riding partners. Contact me offline if using the forum to discuss the issue is more convenient. Here's hoping.

I have been diagnosed with svt, non sustained vt, have PVC,s regularly. In addition 2 leaky valves. These conditions happen numerous times throughout the day. I take 3 heart meds, one being tykosyn, a antiarithmic med. I am a club level B rider. I get short of breath on some climbs and don't have the stamina I would like but am thankful for what I have. I am 64 years old and have been riding for 5 years, in season about 100 to 150 mi a week. My dr wants to do a catheter ablation but am reluctant to do in case it makes things worse. I hope you find this information helpful and ride safe.

Thanks so much!! Do you still have svts while on the antiarrhythmic med? If so, while riding, do you or can you get the rhythm back? Do you cease exercise until a normal rhythym returns?
FYI, I had numerous other rhythm related issues that ablations fixed so I feel ablation was worth it for me but this final one cannot be ablated(is that a word?)
Many thanks! Your response is helpful and would love to get back to many outdoor miles riding with the club. But I am concerned I'd be a problem if I have to stop and revert the HR or drop off a ride.

My svt's continue with my tykosin. The are non sustained meaning they start and stop on their own, some lasting a minute or so or just a few seconds. They do happen to many times to count throughout the day. My dr when I asked him about stoping the tykosin said not to because it was lessening the svt's but making the afib which I forgot to mention in the prior email worse, but he said not to worry about the afib, it was the svt's, non sustained vt's he is more worried about.
