In brief: Heart disease

Arrhythmia may be one of the manifestations of heart disease.
In general, arrhythmias may not be important if the heart is structurally healthy but may be dangerous if the heart is weak. Of course the more accurate answer will depend of the specific kind of arrhythmia and the extent of the heart disease, but you did not provide that info. Discuss with your md.
