I would push for a 24hr ECG which would hopefully pick up anything abnormal. Going on beta blockers sounds like overkill unless they find anything definitive. One pill I was on that is derived from a plant is Digoxin and that comes from the Fox Glove plant which unfortunately is poisonous! Other than that I can't really help!
Thanks for explaining that, I'll try and go to docs and get 24 hour monitor to start off.
