In brief: Specifics needed

Some neuromuscular disorders, for example myotonic dystrophy, may cause heart problems such as abnormal heart rhythm. Some neuromuscular disorders do not have any associated heart problems.
So it depends on the specific neuromuscular disorder - this will involve seeing a neuromuscular specialist (a type of neurologist).
