In brief: See an EP

Sounds like you're in need of a visit with an electrophysiologist.
As specialists in heart rhythm treatment, they'll help define exactly what type of palpitations you have, and in many cases can offer effective treatments, even including ablation procedures which can be curative. Pick your ep carefully - they're essentially surgeons working inside the heart and you want success.
