Following answer to your query.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

What you are experiencing may be related to atrial fibrillation or other atrial arrhythmias, which is a common findings in patients which has done cardiac ablation.

However, if you were my patient I would recommend to do the following examinations to find out what is causing your symptoms:
- ecg
- holter monitoring
- hormone levels ( especially thyroid hormone levels ).

Hope this was of help!
