Unhappy Slow, then fast heart beat

Hi everyone. I've written before regarding a speeding heart when I stand or do anything remotely physical, along with shortness of breath. Beta blockers seemed to do the trick although I've been taken off them for a 24hr ecg. Am I right in thinking that it can't be that serious if beta blockers stopped the symptoms ie - if it was some serious physical problem like a blocked artery or a leaking valve then surely they wouldn't have made that much difference.
Secondly - I noticed my heart problem (baring in mind I'm 25 and in otherwise good health) because my heart was going very slow for me (50bpm) about three months ago. Has anyone ever heard of a disorder that would explain this slow - then fast rate. As you can tell I'm very, very worried. Am due a 24hr ecg soon, followed by a visit to a cardiologist (have already had 3 ecg traces, xray and blood tests done at the emergency room - all normal).

Believe me, any words of encouragement or advice will be very much appreciated. Sorry to be a pain.
