It was rather scary and I can't stop thinking about it.
I did find that I was dehydrayed and had an infection.
But it didn't come on without provocation.
I woke up and noticed my boyfriend was somewhat erect.
So I started to stroke him and such.
When I picked up pace my heart started racing.
So... was curious do many of you experience it during arousal?
Or during or after sex or intimate contact?

There is no doubt that the heart picks up its rate during arousal (read "The Naked Ape" or any A&P book) , but not to the point of an SVT. Or, just because your heart races a bit, it isn't necessarily an SVT. Have it checked out by a Board Certiied Cardiologist. And stay hydrated: once you feel thirsty, you are probably dehydrated by at least 3-5%.

Nope. Sounds like your heart started racing because of the lack of fluid means there’s not as much to be pumped around your circulatory system and infection means your system dilates - 2 factors that decrease BP so it’s no wonder you caused that affect, anything somewhat active or stressful would have likely done the same. Should have just rested up with plenty of fluids and antibiotics.
