Can i still get afib

Hi i woes just wondring if i can still get AFIB i do have svt but do not no what kind i have had a allot of ecg stress test heart echo and a 24 hr monitor  and all have been good but i still get allot of skiped heart beats and what feels like a flutter in my chest but i all so suffer with anxiety so im not to sure if that is playing a part in it

i have had svt for over 3 years and have never had AFIB

so my qustion is even no i have never had AFIB and all my test came back good can i still go in to AFIB

And i think ive only had a svt ep once and my heart rate woes 180 bpm all the other times ive been in sinus tachycardia with a heart rate of 140 to 150 bpm

Anyone can get Afib, especially as they age, but probably your chances are not greater than anyone else's.  To my knowledge, someone who has SVT for many years with many episodes (and maybe a higher rate?) has a slightly greater change of developing Afib at some point, but I do not know the details.
