Cardiac Disorders

Cardiac Disorders in the Los Angeles Area

Cardiac disorders, or cardiomyopathy, is a primary disruption of your heart muscle’s normal rhythm of 60 to 100 beats per minute.

Typical symptoms of cardiomyopathy may include:

  • Skipped heartbeats
  • Thumping or fluttering in your chest
  • A racing heart or fast heartbeats
  • Heartbeats that feel harder than usual

You may feel any of these symptoms in your chest, your neck or your throat. They can occur whether you’re active or if you’re resting as well as if you’re reclining, sitting or standing.

When You Should Seek Treatment

Palpitations may indicate a more serious heart condition, including atrial fibrillation, which may require evaluation and treatment. If you have a history of heart disease or if you have frequent heart palpitations, you should call Dr. Jordan, who may suggest heart monitoring to diagnose a more serious problem.

However, you should call 9-1-1 for palpitations that are accompanied by:

  • Feeling faint or feeling light-headed
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Severe dizziness
  • Leg swelling

If you have any of these cardiomyopathy symptoms or if you want to know more about the latest treatments for cardiac arrhythmias or atrial fibrillation options, schedule an appointment as soon as possible with Dr. Jay L. Jordan.
