Have you ever had the feeling of your heart skipping a beat, beating very fast, or fluttering in your chest? While these feelings can sometimes be due to excitement or nervousness, they can also be a sign of a condition called atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of abnormal heart rhythm, and may be caused by other conditions such as high blood pressure or coronary artery disease. If you have atrial fibrillation, you are five times more likely to suffer from a stroke. Atrial fibrillation also increases your risk of congestive heart failure. If you have heart palpitations, chest pain, or shortness of breath, visit your doctor at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point immediately to find out why.
