Can I go on a roller coaster with my son?

Hello, I have High Blood Pressure and SVT. I loved roller coasters all my life and my son now has a love for them . i hate to tell him i can't go on with him. I was diagnosed with Supra Ventricular Tachycardia when I was 26 yrs old and had an ablation. It did not work. I am now 34 and also have High blood pressure and a pretty good case of anxiety. It has RUINED my life. I take cartia 180mg a day and 75 toprol and now spirilectonol for the swelling in my legs. The cartia makes my legs and ankles swell a little bit. I am wondering if you think i can get on a roller coaster with my son. We are going to 6 flags on Aug 25th and I would Really like to go on with him.... Do you really consider SVT a heart problem. Thank you for your help.Jennifer
