I struggled with what to title this category on the blog. Is my arrhythmia considered a heart disease? No. I have a pounding heart, and the pounding is coming from the wrong place. In my case, the pounding is coming from the ventricles, so it is called Ventricular Tachycardia.
Ventricular tachycardia is a rare condition that they take very seriously because it can lead to ventricular fibrillation. It can kill you quickly. (But don’t worry. My heart is structurally doing just great, and my v-tach episodes have all been short. I’m good.)
I was only diagnosed with it in 2016. You can click on the links below to learn more of my story.
