3 years ago I had a carotid CTA which detected an intermittent cardiac arrhythmia. I am experiencing heart rate spikes. Was that arrhythmia real?
Review of records: In general, the results of tests that you had done should be available to you, and you can take them to another doctor for review. Don't assume that the 2nd opinion doctor will have access to the tests unless you bring them.

Often they can occur without any known cause, but due to an electrical disturbance in the heart which triggers the irregular beat and it is then conducted outside the normal conduction system of the heart. ...Read more
Different ways: Some arrhythmias can be treated with medications; others can be modified or even cured with a procedure in the cardiac catheterization lab (radio frequency ablation). It will depend on what the type and or mechanism of the arrhythmia is and how much of an impact it is having. ...Read more
