Suggest treatment for atrial fibrillation

I have afib but it has been control by surgery and medication until recently. Now it will be regular for awhile then, it will skip a beat and pound really hard several times before returning to normal. This happens non-stop through out the day and has been going on for over a week. What should I do?
