In brief: Arrhythmia

Arrhythmia is a rhythm disturbance, or an abnormal beating of the heart.
It can be fast or slow. Other symptoms such as lightheadedness or passing out, or chest pain are concerning and should be addressed by your doctor. In addition, some arrhythmias are associated with an increased stroke risk and you may need to take meds to prevent that.
