Treatment for tachy cardia

I am in need of knowing what treatment is out there for tachy cardia ? Im a 33 yr old female diagnoised with sinus tachy cardia for 4 yrs and this last month my new primary dr gave me a 30 day event monitor and found my heart rate was hitting 180-200bpm . All these cardioligist i have seen say theres not much they can do put me on digitek which was working but now isnt and i know there there has to be something to calm my heart down before it kills me. I also wanted you all to know i have tried several beta blockers and other meds but i am look for solutions like surgery or a well known medication that has proven to be very effective. My doctors here are the worst in the world i swear so i am hoping a dr online will see this and help. ty.

Good morning! Aside from the drug therapies that are out there you could be a candidate for ablation therapy. This is a cath lab procedure that basically deadens some of those overly excited signals your heart is getting. In some cases it can be an outpatient thing but you may have to stay overnight for it. Talk to your docs or if you're not happy with them, grab your bat and ball and go play somewhere else. You don't have to stick with those guys. Your insurance company can tell you other people to go see. Ask around. Diet changes will only help marginally in chronic situations like yours. They should be considered but they are not going to fix what is racing your heart. Let me know how it works out. Hope this helps you as you hunt down other options.
