I have had severe coronary artery disease for almost 18 years, which prevents me leading an ordinary life. However I have got used to it and as long as I don't do much at all and take all my pills on time, things are usually pretty stable and I can cope. I almost feel its under control. However the onset of PAF diagnosed at the start of April seems to be completely random and I am finding the attacks quite scary. I know what to do if my CAD changes but it seems that with Afib you just have medication to hopefully prevent a stroke but have to put up with the PAF attacks .
I often wonder if I am going to survive them!
