I would be interested in the percentage of the types of AF. What is the percentage of people with the fast heart beat AF and the people who's heart just goes out of rhythm and their heart rate doesn't go above 100 when in AF. I have the latter and have been given drugs that slow my heart down causing all sorts of problems. The doctors assumed I had the fast one, so I went down to the doctors when I was in my AF and got an ECG so I can now show the cardiologist. I have stopped all the medication and now stop it by making my heart go over 100. A good game of badminton has stopped a couple of times or walking up a hill. I used to take Flecainade to stop it but as it didn't stop for many hours it must have stopped on its own. I was told to rest when taking it so it was counterproductive for me.
It must be two different things and doctors don't seem to recognise it. I would be interested when people post to say if what type they have as AF seems to be different.
