Suggest treatment for heart arrhythmia

Hi, i have a question about my heart arrythmia. If i am feeling a random quivering sensation in my chest before or after a skipped and racing heartbeat, and it occurs with activity, stress, eating a meal, execrise, having coffee and tea and alcohol, does it sound like lone atrial fibrillation? I have seen 2 cardiologists in the past 2 years who found two hundred and something supraventricular ectopic beats in an hour with my holter monitor. They did not, however, catch my episode that i complain about..it gets worse as the years go by and i have a strong feeling this is what i am up against. ((i am a 23 year old female with 2 young kids))

Hi,

I hope your stress echocardiography and ECG is normal. If these are normal, then avoid tea, coffee, alcohol. Also, undergo thyroid status monitoring and blood pressure. If all ok then I will suggest taking low dose beta blocker as metoprolol.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Varinder Joshi, General & Family Physician
