This answer was rated:

I felt very unwell on Sunday evening felt very faint dizzy breathless full sensation in back of head and neck vomiting breathless and felt I was going to collapse I had to call an ambulance they captured what they called VT my heart rate was 200. I went to hospital by which time it had settled and they sent me home? I'm very scared now fearing if it happens again I may not be OK. What should I do?
Was it SVT?

The ambulance crew said svt, the hospital logged it as V

Sorry hospital said VT
It is s a huge difference. VT or V tach is a potentially lethal arrhythmiaSVT is concerning but benign heart rhythmThat needs to be clarified ASAP

Thank you I'm not sure what one it was don't know why they would say different I've made an appointment with a privately cardiologist to find out rather than waiting. I do know that I felt I was going to go and I knew if I had let myself collapse I was gone it was a horrible feeling I done everything to keep myself conscious. My heart was 200 I've been unwell with funny turns for a few years never knew why until now but also waiting to see a neurologist.
