Arrhythmias. It depends on the arrhythmia, sometimes they are the result of scarring in the heart, or the result of valvular disease or high blood pressure. Often they can occur without any known cause, but due to an electrical disturbance in the heart which triggers the irregular beat and it is then conducted outside the normal conduction system of the heart.
Arrhythmia. Arrhythmias have lots of potential causes, they range from structural abnormalities, through physiologic and psychologic stresses, chemical drivers, smoking and other things.....
Anytime. Most major arrythmias start in 3-4 decade of life, but those with congenital heart issues may have arrythmias sooner.
Several. These include palpitations (a feeling of skipped heart beats, fluttering or "flip-flops, " or feeling that your heart is "running away").Pounding in your chest. Dizziness or feeling light-headed. Fainting. Shortness of breath. Chest discomfort. Weakness or fatigue (feeling very tired).
Do symptoms of an arrhythmia get worse with activity? My heart will go insane some days, seems worse with any kind of activity, even speech.
See a doctor. It sounds like atrial fibrillation.
What kind of arrhythmia is it when for several weeks your heart will beat normal then will beat faster than normal. I've had several tests done though?
Many. Many kinds of arrhythmias can do this.
A heart arrhythmia. Is a term used for any number of conditions in which there is abnormal electrical activity in the heart. The heart beat may be too fast or too slow, and may be regular or irregular.
Heart rhythm problem. Heart arrhythmia is a rhythm problem arising from the electrical properties of the heart. Can be low heart rate or high heart rate.
Flip-flop. Most people who are troubled by minor heart arrhythmia report a flip-flop, fluttering, or pounding sensation. Unexplained loss of consciousness, usually without warning causing injury, is a tip off to doctors that a serious arrhythmia may be present.
Palpitations. Mostly patients report having palpitations, or feeling that heart is beating fast &/or strong. Some may feel lightheaded or dizzy. Occasionally serious arrhythmia may be associated with chest pain, and loss of consciousness (loc). Pt with palp and loc should seek medical attention immediately. Also, loc may be the only sign, especially during exercise, and needs immediate attention.
