Violation of the heart rhythm may develop for various reasons and intercostal neuralgia is one of them. Often, heart palpitations are not required in such cases. Sometimes the treatment of intercostal arrhythmia is still prescribed, mainly in the case of subjective intolerance to the pathology of the patient.

Intercostal arrhythmia (MA) is a complication of acute inflammatory disease - intercostal neuralgia. With this pathology, the sympathetic part of the nervous system is exacerbated, which reflexively affects cardiac activity.Tachycardia, the main symptom of which is a rapid heartbeat, develops.

Intercostal arrhythmia often runs asymptomatic and, in rare cases, can bring a noticeable discomfort to the patient.

Diagnosis of rhythm disturbance is performed using a standard electrocardiogram during an attack. With proper treatment of the underlying disease, it will not be necessary to prescribe drugs and drugs for the treatment of intercostal arrhythmias. For this, the first symptoms should be addressed to the neurologist, who, if necessary, will refer to the cardiologist for consultation.
