I actually had the same thing occur to me out of the blue when I was in my second year of undergrad. It would get up to 230+ causing near blackouts. We tried meds at first which did not work. Next we were prepared for the ablation. They went in through my inner thigh through the main artery to my heart. They went in and tried to shock my heart to go into the arrhythmia, but could not get it to on command. I had the common issue of extra nodes that send the signals through your heart, but since they couldn’t see which ones to get rid of, they decided against ablation. If they had guessed wrong it could’ve caused me to be on a pacemaker. Eventually they gave me meds to take when an attack occurs and said I would “grow out of it” currently (9 years later) I have attacks extremely rarely: from 0-3 annually. I have yet to go back and see what else could be done for it though.
