Cardiologist 's  Response
As you have had a recent ablation, the sensation might be related to the arrhythmia treated by the ablation recently; depending on what type of ablation was done and for which specific arrhythmia, some residual arrhythmia may be present. You should figure out how long it lasted, and exactly how you felt and report this right away to your cardiologist/electrophysiologist. I work in NYC and can see you in my office if you wish.
