Arrhythmia

ArrhythmiaArrhythmia is a condition when you suffer from irregular heartbeat, as the electrical impulses of the heart stop working properly. Though irregular heartbeats for a short period or after a stressful physical activity are common, the situation becomes troublesome when you experience continuously irregular heartbeats. In severe cases, arrhythmia causes damage to heart, brain and other organs and sometimes results in sudden death.

Symptoms and Causes

An interruption in the electrical impulses that help the heart to contract can result in arrhythmia. Reduction in blood supply to the heart or damaged heart tissue may change the structure of the heart. Such a condition poses a risk of arrhythmia.

Some risk factors include:

  • Mental stress
  • Increased intake of coffee
  • Drug abuse
  • Irregular dosages of over-the-counter drugs
  • Smoking
  • Regular alcohol consumption
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes

Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Angina or chest pain
  • Extreme tiredness or fatigue
  • Confusion over little things
  • Weakness, breathlessness, dizziness, lightheadedness

Treatment

  • Stop taking illegal drugs like cocaine and amphetamines. The regular consumption of these drugs may create a condition for arrhythmia.
  • Coronary bypass surgery and Ventricular aneurysm surgery are helpful in severe arrhythmia cases.

All cells require a combination of vitamins and minerals to function properly. Various studies prove that vitamin supplements can help reverse an arrhythmia condition
