There are several people who have felt an increased heart rate or a “flutter” in their heart. These can be signs of arrhythmia, or abnormal/irregular heartbeat. Now, if you’ve experienced those symptoms, don’t panic. Arrhythmias are extremely common, especially as you age. Each year, millions of people deal with irregular heartbeats without any additional major complications. In fact, most cases are harmless. But, some arrhythmias can be extremely dangerous and require treatment and arrhythmia monitoring. If you have experienced symptoms, it’s important to make an appointment with your doctor just to be safe.

A broad range of symptoms can be associated with arrhythmias. A single premature beat may be felt as a “skipped beat.” These premature beats can occur in rapid succession, which feels like a “fluttering” sensation in the chest and/or neck. If this sensation lasts long enough, more serious symptoms may start to develop including fatigue, lightheadedness, fainting, shortness of breath, chest pain, or in more extreme cases, collapse and sudden cardiac arrest.
