I had been having dizzy spells for months, and passed out on a few occasions. Also I was short of breath just walking upstairs whereas before I used to visit the gym four times a week and run 10 km every Saturday. The doctor diagnosed AF and now, a few weeks on, I am on a blood thinning drug prior to having electrical cardioversion sometime in the future.
I am glad I found this blog as I am feeling quite nervous about having a 'heart problem', although apparently AF is relatively common. I have a couple of questions if anyone can help please:
Is it better to not exert yourself with AF?
Has anyone on here had electrical cardioversion, and if so what was their experiences?
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
