Consult local doc: An interventional specialist can freeze the ectopic site & end the problem through a catheter. The procedure is usually available in larger metro areas in conjunction with cardiology practice groups. The runs of rapid heart rate & fatigue might be amenable to medication but this would just "manage" the process.
