    Blood pressure is a measurement of the force exerted against the walls of your arteries as your heart pumps blood to your body and hypertension is the term used to describe high blood pressure.

    Mayo Clinic - Heart Arrhythmia Symptoms
    Arrhythmias may not cause any signs or symptoms. In fact, your doctor might find you have an arrhythmia before you do, during a routine examination.

    Other signs and symptoms may be related to your heart not pumping effectively due to the fast or slow heartbeat. These include shortness of breath or wheezing, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting or near fainting, and chest pain or discomfort. Seek urgent medical care if you suddenly or frequently experience any of these signs and symptoms at a time when you wouldn't expect to feel them.
