When to see a doctor about arrhythmia

People who have any arrhythmia symptoms, even just minor palpitations, should consult their doctor to diagnose their condition. If there are no underlying heart problems (which can usually be diagnosed with blood tests), no underlying structural heart problems and no underlying fault with the electrical activity of the heart, the arrhythmia is usually considered benign.


People who have been diagnosed with arrhythmia need to ensure they visit their doctor on a regular basis, to monitor their symptoms and any underlying heart disease, to monitor their medication and adjust it if necessary and to provide advice on surgical options (if warranted).
