Genetic Testing?

To make a long story short - I have had a normal echo, a normal MRI (though it did show my RV end pressure was higher than normal range at 99 which my cardiologist said he’s not concerned with), my 2-week holter showed SVT and some wife complex tachycardia that my doctor said is likely SVT with abbarency based on how it showed on strip. I also had an Ep study - was hopeful for an ablation but they didn’t induce any SVT or VT.

Now I’ve been referred for a stress test - doctor says to make me feel more comfortable about exercising- and he’s offered genetic testing.

Has anyone had genetic testing done for your arrhythmia? Did you regret doing it - find it helpful?

Also curious if anyone has a similar experience to mine? Any advice? I feel so anxious.
