What are symptoms of atrial arrhythmias?

Conduction problems like arrhythmias can go unnoticed. Other times they can cause symptoms, like these:

  • Fainting
  • Dizziness, feeling light-headed
  • Heart fluttering (palpitations)
  • Missed or extra heart beats
  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain

You know your body well enough to tell when something doesn't feel right. That is why you should check with your doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Your doctor may want to test your conduction system to determine the best treatment options.


Atrial Fibrillation Patient

"It (the atrial fibrillation) felt like a runaway train. I was in a constant state of flutter and fibrillation at over 180 beats a minute."
