In brief: A possibility

I am assuming u r taking about atrial flutter.
A dangerous atrial arrhythmia. Associated with fibrillation too. If untreated an increase risk of a stroke can happen due to clot formation in your heart. Rate control with a blood thinner usual therapy. Conversion to regular sinus rhythm an option using drugs, electrical cardioversion or surgery. Close follow up with cardiologist very important.
