Heart Palpitations

Most people with atrial fibrillation have a fast, irregular heart beat if they are not taking a medicine to slow down their heart rate. You may have some additional problems with your heart's electrical system. If you otherwise feel well, this is not likely to be immediately dangerous. Call your doctor's office to arrange to have an EKG done.
