I have Tachycardia.Will I die from this?

So my doctor just called me today and told me that I have Tachycardia( fast- heart ). I have to go see the heart doctor on Friday. I am scared that I could die before then. Do you think that is possible or that I could die from this at all? Does anyone else have this problem? What was your solution to the problem? I just want to thank everyone for their wonderful answers! I went to the doctor on Friday and he gave me a pill to take. I hope that it works! I am also going to start working out more to lose weight too. He said my anxiety attacks might be setting it off since I am so afraid of dying in my sleep. I hope it works! Yall pray for me!

You dont mention your age or the reason you saw the md . Do you notice the increase in your heart rate ? It could be a number of things and no you wont die . It may be a slightly higher heart rate than normal . This can be caused by allergy meds such as sudafed . It could be due to anxiety . But your md would still send you to the heart md to check out your heart they havr to rule every thing out . it could be an alternative electrical pathway in your heart , this conducts the heart beat . If you have an extra one that is telling the heart to beat too fast , this could cause tachycardia . My daughter had this at birth . She out grew it but there is treatment if you dont including medication and other inor procedures . Dont worry if you were going to die your Md would have sent you right to icu .

On my Dad s side of my family, most of the men have died from or suffered heart attacks. My great-grandad and great-nan both died from heart attacks. My great-uncle collapsed in the street and died of a heart attack as did my Dad s dad and my uncle has no memory left having had three heart attacks. Could I be next in line? I was born with a heart condition and had to have a major operation in 2003. Is it probable that I will suffer the same death as the others?

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
