Tachycardia isn't really fatal. All that means is that your heart has an extra or irregular beat every so often. I have tachycardia and I'm healthier than 2 oxen. I look younger than I am and am in really good physical health. Basically there is a group of cells that controls your heart rhythm and this group of cells, every once in a while, causes a funny beat - that's it. Other than that your heart is healthy (unless there is some other problem). My doctor told me that I may have lived my entire life without even knowing I had tachycardia except that I got electrocuted badly enough to go into arrhythmia. I hope this helps.

I have just discovered that I have Ventricular Tachycardia. I went to have my new pacemaker of a month checked and adjusted (for complete heart block after an operation) and at the check up the technician noticed a 28 second episode and called for the dr and he consulted the Consultant. I was given Amiodorone 200mg front loaded. My question is: How much useful life have I got left to get things in order and get on with my bucket list?
