Question for anyone who can answer

 This is actually the first time I have posted to the group. 
I was diagnosed with P.O.T.S. in October which is caused from my Type 1 Diabetes. I also have diabetic peripheral neuropathy. I went under surgery the day after Yule to help with my fast heart rate. The nerve is damaged that slows down the heart rate, so they went into the sinus node and burned the area that speeds it up to slow it down some. With success they went from the mid-100s to the mid-90s. I'm still in the healing stages and have a follow-up visit on January 4th.

The reason I am telling you this is because I have a couple questions for those that can answer this. 
1)Does anyone know exactly if a defibulator would work? I know its a device that shocks the heart when it starts to go too fast. Or since its a nerve that is damaged may this device not work? 

The reason I asked is because I am trying to see if there is another way instead of having to go in for more surgeries because they said it wouldn't be my last one and the fact that doing it the way that they are doing it, they risk slowing it down too much and having to put a pacemaker in. 

2)I am having problems more so at night than any other time with the fact that they had to go in to burn some of the heart tissue. This is causing heaviness from the swelling of the tissue. It at times feels like when my heart rate would go too fast, basically like I am having a heart attack. I am taking the recommended 800 mg of Ibprofuen every 8 hours, but again its worse at night and doesn't seem to be helping much. Does anyone know of any more natural remedies that I could try instead of killing my already sensitive stomach with Ibprofuen? 

Thanks for all the help in advance.
