Keeping your heart in a natural rhythm
What is it?
There are many varieties of heart rhythm disorders. Your heart may go too fast or too slow, or there may be some other irregularity in the pattern of your heartbeats.
Heart rhythm disorders are caused by abnormal electrical activity in the heart.
What are the symptoms?
There are different symptoms associated with the various kinds of heart rhythm disorders. You may experience some of these symptoms, or none of them. Not all arrhythmias are accompanied by symptoms.
Most common symptoms of arrhythmias are:
- Rapid heartbeat
- Feeling that your heart skips beats
- Shortness of breath
- Discomfort in your chest
- Fatigue or weakness
