Hi There

I understand your concern as SVT is a troublesome condition although it's not life threatening but surely makes you feel like hell. If it's staying for more than usual now then it's better to go for EP study and then finally RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) to treat it permanently. It's a very good treatment with very good results. And premanent solution to SVT.

Wish you good luck
