Irregular Heartbeat - Signs And Symptoms To Be Alert For!

Clinical Cardiology, MD - Consultant Physician
Cardiologist, Surat
Irregular Heartbeat - Signs And Symptoms To Be Alert For!

Atrial fibrillation is a form of irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia, which you may experience due to a problem in the electrical system of the heart. Such a problem causes the upper parts of the heart or the atria to fibrillate. Due to this quivering, the normal rhythm between the lower parts of the heart and the atria gets disrupted. The ventricles are likely to beat faster in an irregular rhythm. This is a severe condition where the blood may get collected in the atria; this could lead to the formation of blood clots. These clots can block the blood flow and lead to a stroke.

Causes
Several conditions cause strain and damage to the heart. These include the following:

  1. High blood pressure or hypertension
  2. Heart attack
  3. Valvular diseases
  4. Coronary artery disease
  5. Medical problems like heart failure, lung diseases, high level of thyroid or pneumonia
  6. Heart surgeries
  7. Excess consumption of alcohol

Symptoms
The primary symptoms of atrial fibrillation include the following:

  1. Light-headedness and dizziness
  2. Shortness of breath
  3. Feeling weak and fatigued
  4. Feeling as if the heart is pounding, fluttering or racing (known as palpitations)
  5. Feeling that the beating of the heart is uneven
  6. Chest pain and fainting

In many cases of atrial fibrillation, the symptoms may be absent.

Diagnosis
Conducting several tests, physical examinations and an analysis of your health history is the first step towards diagnosing atrial fibrillation. An electrocardiogram (ECG) needs to be carried out for the detection of this condition. This test is performed for checking problems regarding the electrical activity of the heart. Other laboratory tests and an echocardiogram maybe required as well. An echocardiogram helps in observing the pumping function of the heart and to check whether the valves have been damaged.

Treatment
The treatment options for atrial fibrillation depend on the cause, symptoms and the risks of getting a stroke. Several medicines are used for treatment along with other methods. They are as follows:

  1. Blood thinning medicines for the prevention of a stroke.
  2. Heart rate control medicines which will prevent irregular beating of the heart.
  3. Rhythm control medicines for restoring the heart’s rhythm to normal.
  4. A process known as cardioversion may be used to bring the heartbeat to a normal rhythm. This can be carried out by medicines or an electric shock therapy known as electrical cardioversion.
  5. In case of severe symptoms, ablation may be carried out where the affected areas of the heart are destroyed by the creation of a scar tissue.

For the best diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation, you must consult a doctor as soon as you start experiencing the symptoms of the condition. A doctor will prescribe all that you need for an effective treatment.

Hello sir/mam, I have sinusitis problem. Polyps in my left nostril since last 2.5 years i.e 2015. Treatments: (1) Allopathy for 2 year (2) Homeopathy for 2-3 months (3) Ayurveda patanjali for 6 months+was doing jal neti+sutraneti but it was causing more irritation (4) At present Ayurveda but different doctor. Please recommend is there any chance of reducing polyps or should I go for only preventing infection. Plus which way should I go. Kindly reply asap.

The ENT surgeons usually recommend getting them removed surgically as Allopathic system of medicine has no medicinal treatment for nasal polyps. Our experience is that these nasal polyps are easily treatable and there is no need to get these nasal polyps removed surgically. Homeopathy is very effective in dealing with these little growths. Not only are the symptoms removed, the growths themselves vanish over a period of time. Homeopathy is uniquely placed as it takes into account not only the symptoms, but also the causes of the problem. Some causes are at times obvious. Others may not be obvious and are subtle. These may be the stress factors that the person had been undergoing before the problem surfaced You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

Excluding the tobacco related habit, you can get a thorough professional cleaning and polishing done by a dentist in Ajmer. Proper brushing will maintain the same. You must use listerine mouth was as it has long lasting coverage of bad breath than betadine or chlorhexidine mouth washes. Buy an oral mint spray which can be very helpful during those moments. Consistent with these instruction can help you in long run. Good luck.

Hi Lybrate-user, There is difference of opinion in managing COPD. This is due to changing guidelines for managing the same. However one thing that is definitely known is that in treating COPD we need to use a class of inhaled medicine called anticholinergics. This medicine is missing in the combination that you describe. Hence it is Not the recommended combination. So you need to use inhaler with the recommended class of drug. There are many such recommended inhalers in market.

Dear World over the treatment for asthma is inhalers. Also if. Your asthma has been controlled well for 20 yrs with stable lung function, you must continue inhalers. However it is advisable to seek a chest physician opinion with latest spirometry. You can contact me in private clinic. Regards

Cough can be due to affected lungs too. Go for a chest x-ray (pa view) and sputum test if you are able to expectorate. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for it.

Whenever I start cleaning my house that day night I feel lot of difficulty in breathing. I'm not able to sleep and I feel my lungs are blocked. I consulted a doctor locally. He said it would be mild asthma and he has given asthalin inhaler for use whenever I feel that congestion. Is it asthma? Is there any permanent cure? How to keep myself fit? Please advise.

Asthma cannot be cured completely. Montemac l is a controlled medicine for allergic asthma. If you are able to remain symptom free by using it daily, I would suggest you to continue it for at least 3 months continuously. I would suggest you to consult an allergist-immunologist who will suggest you allergy testing. This will help you identify substances causing symptoms to you as well as precautions regarding how to avoid them. Also, an allergist may suggest you specific allergen immunotherapy depending upon the results of allergy testing, which may improve your allergy symptoms. Please try to avoid exposure to smoke, dusts and air pollution as much as possible. Also please do not smoke if you are a smoker. A nutritive diet rich in vitamins & minerals including anti-oxidants is very important to support immune system. I would also suggest you regular breathing exercises which help you in a long run.
