It depends on the type of arrhythmia. Many people are asymptomatic, even with serious arrhythmias. Others are highly symptomatic with mild arrhythmias.
Dr. Luke Hermann
Emergency Medicine
In brief: Possibly
It's possible but many things can cause these symptoms.
To check for arrhythmias, feel the pulse when symptoms are present- is it regular? Fast (well over 100 beats per minute)? Slow (well under 50-60 beats per minute)? If so than it's very possible that an arrhythmia is the source of the symptoms.
