What are the symptoms of arrhythmia?
Tests such as ECG, Holter test, stress test, ECHO, Transtelephonic monitor can be performed to diagnose arrhythmia. Although it is difficult to distinguish arrhythmia symptoms from other heart disease symptoms, the complaints experienced due to heart rhythm disturbances are as follows:
- Feeling irregular heartbeat,
- feeling of sweating,
- Feeling pressure in the chest,
- Dizziness, severe heart palpitations,
- General state of fatigue,
