The heart's upper chambers normally beat in a regular, coordinated rhythm with the heart's lower chambers. In atrial fibrillation, the heart's upper chambers can quiver out of rhythm.
The result is an irregular heart rhythm that can cause symptoms, such as shortness of breath, weakness, heart palpitations, and sometimes a heart murmur. The condition can also lead to blood clots developing in the upper chambers, which can cause a stroke.
Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) treatments can vary based on the symptoms that people experience. While it's important for people to follow a doctor's advice related to A-fib treatments, they might also choose to supplement medical treatments with natural ones.[/center]
