How do you FEEL?: If this is really fast so that it takes your breath away and shows as perhaps paroxysmal atrial tachycardia on Holter monitor, your cardiologist can recommend ways to manage that are probably easy. If your heart's just a little fast but seems to be doing a good job pumping blood and the beat's regular, what's the worry? It's just a number. Think about upping your aerobic fitness activities.
