Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Irregular heart beats is a sign of cardiac arrhythmias especially atrial fibrillation which may be related to heart failure. Heart failure may be responsibile for general weakness and dyspnea.

If you were my patient I would recommend to do the following examinations to find out what is causing your symptoms:
- Blood work
- Ecg
- Cardiac echo
- Holter monitoring

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
