My husband has been having sudden onset racing heart beat for nearly 30 years now and no one has got to the bottom tf it. He had a double by pass in 2006 and a stent two years later, his heart normally. Goes upto 130 now whereas it was ov 200 before his op, he has never had an episode whilst on a holter  though. He had a raised pulse for 3 hours today and has had two I the last 7 days any ideas?
