Are heart arrhythmias that last 1 week but occur only every 2 years something to worry about?

In brief: Probably not

But you definitely need to be evaluated by a cardiologist to establish what type of arrhythmia it is that you are having (do you have symptoms? Have you been treated in the past? Is anything going on in your life that is cyclical and coincides with your arrhythmia?).

In brief: Depends

Depends on the arrhythmia and the heart rate as well as other factors like your age, general health, condition of your heart, symptoms present during the arrhythmia, presence or absence of diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure, hx of stroke, etc.
