Last year, I discovered I had SVT and a small mass in my heart (not cancerous, had it my whole life apparently) and I've learned to cope with it.

Does anyone else here have SVT and have beta blockers affected your energy level? I've opted not to take 'em 'cause I was told they could make me sluggish at times and I've gotta 4 year old, a 3 year old, and one due in a few weeks to keep up with!

Im taking beta blockers for a completely different reason. It hasn't affected my work outs, I still go to the gym 3-4times each week and am still upping the intensity.
What I do find is they give me vivid dreams, sometimes nightmares. Also the occasional drop in blood pressure leaves me light headed.
I'd prefer not to take meds but needs must. Be healthy and do what's right for you x
