Irregular Heart beat? Difficulty Breathing?

Patient : I've been having alot of joint pain lately in my elbows and hands, as well as my neck/shoulders. I've also been having trouble breathing and my heart beat has been irregular. I feel weak and kind of dizzy/faint.. Like I can see my arm pulsing to my heart beat just by looking at my bicep.. I just kind of feel like I can pass out or something.. What would these symptoms signify? Is it anything serious?
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting us. Irregular heart beat with dizzy spells require immediate medical attention. It could be Atrial fibrillation that is causing this. Joint pain could be due to infective origin either viral or Streptococcal. Consult Cardiologist immediately. Get ECG and Echo done along with blood investigations.
