Troubled breathing. Had bronchial condition, atrial flutter found. What is wrong?

I had a bronchial condtion that morped into having trouble breathing . I went to the ER as it happened at night. A ekg was done and an atriul flutter was found (abnormal st and t wave abnormality). I had lost a lot of weight through diet just before all this happened. Is this something that needs immediate Attention. I take my blood pressure 2 x daily and it is perfect. No higher than 128 over 84 ever.

Atrial flutter is a bad thing , and you should get treated Asap with digoxin or beta-blockers.

Thats good that your blood pressure is controlled by medicine

You had lost weight and it has nothing to do with your atrial flutter.May be You lost weight due to any disease that may cause atrial flutter?

You also need to undergo echo + diagnostic angiography for heart and cause of atrial flutter.

hope this helps
