We are going to talk in this article about the symptoms of atrial fibrillation. This is something that many people ask questions about. What does atrial fibrillation make sense? How do I know if I have atrial fibrillation? There are people out there who may not have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and feel these symptoms and want to know this may have been based on atrial fibrillation on what I feel and what a patient feels inside.

And so let's talk about possible symptoms of atrial fibrillation. The most difficult part of this is that there many people who feel their atrial fibrillation completely different. Let's start with the most common way in which a person feels atrial fibrillation. And that's number one, it's just that feeling of the heart goes fast. As people get episodes of atrial fibrillation the heartbeat can suddenly go from a normal range such as 60 to 80 beats per minute to 130 140 sometimes even higher than that. Some people will race their hearts or feel pounding. Sometimes I felt like a fish flopping or one thunder banging. It feels just like a hard, fast beat. And that's sort of what is probably one of the most common ways that someone feels atrial fibrillation. Another way people feel atrial fibrillation is what is an irregular heartbeat. Irregular heartbeat means the heartbeat is not stable. And so instead of a pretty stable heartbeat can go at a certain pace, skip, start stuttering and does not continue at a nice steady pace.

And that's sort of more of a flip-flopping or skip the type of feeling, that's how some people feel atrial fibrillation. That is more of a common feeling for people who atrial fibrillation whose interest heart is not going to do that fast. When it goes pretty fast, more typical people feel a heart pounding, but when it isn't soon then you feel more of a skip feeling. And so those are some of the more of the feelings directly related to the heartbeat or rhythm. But there are also more associated symptoms that can come from atrial fibrillation. One of them is chest pain. There are people when they get their heart rate goes fast, they don't necessarily feel the heart pounding or going fast they just feel the pain or throbbing in their chest from atrial fibrillation treatment.

And in those people there can actually be a sign of the underlying coronary disorders if you have chest pain when you have your episode of atrial fibrillation. And I have spoken in the past that the risk factors Atrial fibrillation are very similar to the risk factors that people get when they do coronary heart disease. So when people have chest pains with their atrial fibrillation it is very important to get screening performed on cardiovascular diseases, such as with a stress test. What are other, more subtle symptoms? Another more subtle symptom would be shortness of breath.

Shortness of breath happens for a lot of reasons, though when it comes to fibrillation sometimes atrial People don't feel the heart goes fast or irregular. They just feel a bit more short of breath. And they do their activities they just notice that They make breathing easier and shorter that sure sign of atrial fibrillation. Sometimes people are not necessarily feeling short of breath. They can just feel tired. Excess fatigue can also be a sign of it atrial fibrillation. And then there are people who are feel absolutely nothing. Their heart rate can go very fast and you can imagine how fast it goes 130 150 they hardly feel anything, but there are many people out there and those people get them found they accidentally atrial fibrillation. So there is a wide range of symptoms that people feel when they are vibrating their atrial fibrillation. Maybe the heart goes fast or pounding, maybe irregular.

It can cause chest pain, shortness of breath, tiredness and sometimes no symptoms at all. And so that's why it's a little hard to describe Symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation Because People it feels very different. So if you have some of these complaints and you think you may have atrial fibrillation please discuss with your doctor or referral for a cardiologist so that you can get the right tests to see if your symptoms coincide with episodes of atrial fibrillation.
