nonsusatined ventricular tachycardia

back in june i was going into very frequent runs of Nonsustained VT... at first i felt it but didn't know what it was.. finally it was bothering me enough to go to the ER. while i was there i told my doctor to look at my monitor while she was listening to my lungs. she freaked out and ran off then i got admitted.. i was there for 4 days. they did echo and all kinds of blood work which came back normal. it got so bad at one point a crash team came in and was getting ready to do CPR incase i passed out. thankfully i didn't but i was discharged the next day with almost no explanation as to why it happened. I followed up with my Cardiologist and had a nuclear stress test which came back normal. I am still wiating on a Cardiac MRI to check for scarring or damage and my Insurance refuses to cover it. my Doctors all told me not to worry and that NSVT without apparent heart disease is non fatal but ive read online that NSVT carries a higher risk of Sudden death and i have not been able to relax since I had my episode. i still havn't even gotten an explanation as to why it even happened in the first place? has anyone else been through this? i am 27 years old, in shape, 5'11 200 pounds and healthy and active.
