Good morning all. Please can anyone help me in finding an EP in Leicester. I got very fast and irregular heart beats last End of August and then again in September. I was in hospital and after loads of tests the cardiologist team said they think I have PAF... They have put me on bisoprolol 5mg a day and clopidogrel which is not an anticoagulant. They said I don't need to be on anticoagulants as I have no other problems. I am 46 female. I have not had any heart problems since and only find that when I get palpertations due to menopause and hot sweats that my heart beat goes up to 70 bpm max. My heart rate is always in normal sinus. I am due to see the cardiologist in March. They did a 24 hour ECG and all is fine they also did a perfusion scan in 2 parts and all is fine. So what did cause my heart heart to go fast and irregular. And why did they say it's LIKE!! PAF but they are not sure. but my cardiologist did tell me if I go on holiday to let my insurance company know I have AF. Please help me as I am so confused, I had a holiday booked last November to Florida as we go every year and we did cancel it cause I got so frightened as the cardiologist said it could happen again and he did not advise going away till they did the tests. As you all can imagine I was so depressed and cried so much over Christmas. But now I am feeling a lot better and like I said my heart beats are normal from 50/65 bpm. So please if you knows any EP's in Leicester then please let me know and do you think I need to see one. Cause I need to know if I have AF or not. I will be going to the Leicester General Hospital in March. I am seeing the Doctor tomorrow so I can ask if she will refer me. Please help me as I am so confused and I need a holiday but am so scared to go anywhere now..... And if I get to hot or panic they I get anxiety and I can feel my heart beat getting fast but when taking my pulse it's just beating normally at 60/70 bpm....... SO WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ME PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP THANK YOU....
