8 Strange Heart Disease Symptoms That Concern Your Doctor 1

Irregular heartbeat

Medically called arrhythmia, irregular heartbeat can occur due to a wide range of factors, from panic attacks to heart failure or an upcoming heart attack.

Generally, an irregular heartbeat happens when your heart isn’t pumping blood the way it should.

According to the Heart Rhythm Society, ‘high blood pressure and coronary artery disease (blockage in the pipes of the heart’ are the main causes of blood vessel disorders.

Another common cause of arrhythmia is an alteration of the electrical system which naturally controls your heartbeat. Here are some of the most commonly encountered types of arrhythmia:

  • Premature ventricular contractions or skipped heartbeats may be caused by many heart diseases and require further investigation;
  • Atrial fibrillation means that your heartbeat is much faster than usually; the heart is able to pump up to four times faster than the normal heartbeat, which can increase your risk of stroke significantly;
  • Atrial flutter also causes a fast heartbeat, but it’s more organized than atrial fibrillation; this condition also increases your risk of stroke.
