Cardiac arrhythmia, or heart arrhythmia, occurs when the electrical impulses that coordinate your heartbeats aren’t working properly, causing the heart rhythm to beat too slowly, fast, or irregularly.
What are the Symptoms?
Arrhythmias might be discovered during routine check-ups, as they do not cause any noticeable signs or symptoms. In some cases, however, there may be serious problems associated with cardiac arrhythmia. Noticeable symptoms include chest pains, shortness of breath, sweating, and fainting or near fainting from lightheadedness or dizziness. This is in addition to feelings of the heart beating too fast or too slowly.
