You need to see a good cardiologist, there are various medications for this, it is better to see a cardiologist and as per advice to take treatment. I think it will be settled through medications

you need to consult a cardiologist. now a days electrophysiological studies which maps the conduction system of the heart is possible in all metro cities. if on that study if they find out an aberrant pathway then a RFA will give permanent cure.

I am 27 yo, last year I had the first episode of SVT, my heart rate jumped to 230/min. I had 3 episodes of SVT since last year. I am taking 1 Toprol XL ( 25 mg) / day. I just need to find out how can I cure this, what about a surgery ? I am interested in the Radiofrequency ablation! How is it done, how long it takes to get my life back to normal ?

I am 48, 5 ft 11 inches 180 lbs. I have been experiencing an irregular heartbeat for periods of 5 - 30 minutes for the past week. The one common factor is eating a fairly large meal and feeling very full. I notice it first in the abdomen then check my pulse where the heart rate is irregular but not fast. I exercise regularly (4x per week; run 4 - 5 miles on exercise day). I have been diagnosed with PACs but this is different, the irregular heartbeat lasts much longer than in the past. What might be the problem and what should I do?
