Is Atrial Fibrillation a Heart Problem?

Atrial fibrillation is a heart problem. Heart consists of upper chambers (atria) and lower chambers (ventricles). Normally they work together to have regular contractions (heartbeats). In atrial fibrillation, the atria do their own thing instead of working together, causing a fast fluttering heartbeat. AFib treatment includes medications and ablations.
