SVT or perimenopause & Stress

I had an episode several weeks ago of very rapid heartbeat..216 in the ambulance...took meds in the ambulance and er to bring it down...spent the night in the hospital.....Dr mentioned SVT.   Had echo, ekg, stress tests...all good....seeing ep on Monday.  Scared out of my mind.  If he says ablation, I am going to Hershey medical center for it...I am currently on 25mg metoprolol....I also take effexor & atarax...depression and allergies....I am so nervous/depressed/anxious about all of this...could this be menopause & stress and not svt?  Can it be controlled with meds?  How bad is the ablation?  I am a mess!
