A.

You may have atrial fibrillation without having any symptoms at all. If you have symptoms, they may include:

  • Heart palpitations (a sudden pounding, fluttering, or racing feeling in the chest).
  • Lack of energy; feeling over-tired.
  • Dizziness (feeling faint or light-headed).
  • Chest discomfort (pain, pressure, or discomfort in the chest).
  • Shortness of breath (difficulty breathing during normal activities or even at rest).
