I have some symptoms of serious heart conditions. How urgently should I seek a medical opinion?

I'm a 29 year old female. I've had a pretty significant arrhythmia for about three years. It's unpredictable, but quite frequently my heart beats much faster when I inhale and then very slowly as I exhale, and also otherwise irregularly. I also have several other concening symptoms. [more inside]

Ech, you're giving me a coronary!

The "new, state of the art" cardio machines at my gym always tell me my heart rate is unreasonably high (170 beats per minute) even though I'm working at a level where I can still maintain a breathy conversation. Occasionally, the machine will say my heart rate is something totally wacky, like 220. [more inside]

Tacky Cardigans are Spooky!

Anyone ever had a tachycardia? I'm in a brunch line, not stressed, not active, just standing there talking. My heart rate shoots up. My dad, a doc, is with me. Says my pulse is 150 bpm. It gradually decreases over the next 15 minutes. The doc today says it's weird for a tachycardia to lead to a pulse shooting up so high. I'm scheduled to wear a halter monitor for a day, but outside that, he says there's not much that can be done. Why do these occur, and how do I keep them from occurring again? Also, if I have lots of stress in my life (just finished a PhD, new very high stress job), can it cause my pulse to race at a time when I am not stressed? Any stories, experiences, information is appreciated. (About me: 35, female, in good health, not overweight, yet not athletic).
