Symptoms of Tachycardia
Tachycardia is generally characterized by the high severity of symptoms which include:
- Undue fatigue;
- Ear noise;
- Chest pains;
- General weakness;
- Dizzy spells;
- Feeling of lack of air;
- Darkened vision;
The severity of the symptoms depends on the sensitivity threshold of the patient’s nervous system as well as the underlying disease. Thus, the increased heart rate in patients with cardiovascular diseases (e.g. Coronary atherosclerosis) may provoke angina pectoris attacks and worsen decompensation of cardiac insufficiency.
Such manifestations of tachycardia are evidence of some chronic disorder; therefore, it is reasonable to seek medical attention, find the cause of this condition, and choose treatment tactics.
