Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

SVT is a temporary abnormal conduction of signal lead. Yes, in few patients, regurgitation lead to volume overload lead to altered pattern of conduction.

Aggravating factors include some medicines, asthma medicines, herbal supplements and cold remedies, drinking large amounts of caffeine or alcohol, tiredness, stress or emotional upset, smoking lots of cigarettes, etcetera.

Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is. Please consult your doctor who will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
