Had flu-like symptoms, sudden onset of arrhythmia's, feeling exhausted. How to cure?

This week I had flu-like symptoms (severe body aches, low grade temp) but with no cough of respiratory symptoms. My fever & aches have subsided today. But yesterday I had a sudden onset of arrhythmias (feels like PVC's). That lasted about an hour. The same arrhythmia woke me this morning, and lasted for several hours.
They are gone now, but I feel totally exhausted. I tire easily from doing the most simple things. What's going on with me?

1. although many arrhythmias are not life threating,and can occur at any age.
2. A doctor can detect an irregular heartbeat during a physical exam by taking your pulse or through investigations like: EKG, Holter Monitoring,stress EKG, echo cardiogram to rule out any coronary artery disease [CAD]
3. stop smoking,limit alcohol intake, and caffeine intake [such as tea, coffee, soft drinks, and some over-the-counter medications), stay away from stimulants used in cough and cold medications.

PS: According to recent European society of Cardiology study: potential effect of H1N1 influenza infection [flu like symptoms] can trigger ventricular arrhythmia, so also check with the same.
