Cardiac arrhythmias and tachycardia

Hubby’s is getting episodes of heart irregularity and double-speed heart rate which seem to coincide with his ‘Parky’ times when his PD symptoms are worse. Obviously he has made his GP aware - but just wondering whether this is commonly connected with mid-stage PD? He has had PD around 8 years and despite regular increases in medication, is now getting '‘off’ times, freezing, increased stiffness and reduced balance.
