Is 210 heartbeat rate dangerous while i m 26 ?

Hi, I am 26 yrz old female...2 months ago i was sitting in my room...all of a sudden i felt dizzling for about 3 to 4 minutes and then my heart beat became so fast...i was like i am gona die...after 2 hours, i got normal but felt weakness in my body for whole day. Again after a week it heppened again but i again did nt noticed. Now after 2 months it heppened again but this time it was for about 3 hours and continuously heartbeat was fast so i went to hospital, in emergency they gave me treatment and when my heartbeat became normal. they referred me to electrophysiology department. The doc gave me few tests like ETT, echo and throid tests. all were normal. doc described me in short that there is some problem in your heart current system and also i need to go for EPS. As dr told me, 30%treatment is successful in medicine but if you will go for EPS, you will be 100% alright. Now i am bit confused what i should do? Oh yeah, my heart rate was 210 while i was just watching tv. Please help me. Also please tell me what are the risks if i dont go for EPS?

you have to go for it.Intracardiac electrophysiology study (EPS) is an invasive test that allows doctors to determine the details of abnormal heartbeats/ took usualy 30mts to 1 hr.this procedure is generally very safe but have some risks but crdiologists can do a catheter ablation to treat the arrithmia so go for it .all the best and wish you a speedy recovery
