Symptoms of Arrhythmia
An arrhythmia is a heart rhythm abnormality. Arrhythmias may indicate a serious problem and can lead to heart disease, stroke or sudden cardiac death. An arrhythmia can be silent and not cause any symptoms. However, among people who experience symptoms, common complaints include:
- Fast or slow heartbeat (palpitations)
- Skipping beats - changes in the pattern of your heart’s rhythm
- Light-headedness, dizziness
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
