A normal resting heartbeat should be steady and regular, between 60-100 beats per minute. Arrhythmia is a cardiovascular issue in which your heart beats too slowly, too quickly, or at an irregular rhythm. It’s actually quite common.
Some symptoms of arrhythmia include:
- a fluttering feeling in your chest
- a heartbeat that feels too fast or too slow
- the feeling of your heart skipping a beat
- See a list of risk factors here
In some cases, there are no signs of arrhythmia until your cardiologist informs you that you have one. That’s why it is important to keep routine appointments and testing.
