The more important: issue is that you are symptomatic. Although 25% is relatively high, if you are symptomatic then 2% is sufficient to justify ablation. Establish with an Electrophysiologist for evaluation and follow his/her recommendations. EP/Ablation or specialized medications may be good options for you to discuss.
