Thank you for your feedback . I am on 3.5 mg warfarin, 1.25 ramipril, 10 bisoprolol, 20 atorvastatin, 250 digoxin, 40 omeprazole. I have never considered myself to be stressed, always been fit and healthy, size10, 53 kilos , until now . I had no warning about A FIb, no racing heart beat, no palpitations that I could feel, just a feeling of being generally unwell with no energy. Swollen ankles and stomach that I put down to the 6 hour flight I had just taken. After 2 days of this I saw a doctor who sent me straight to hospital after diagnosing me with A fIb , where I promptly threw a clot to the brain and woke up 2 days later in ICU. They didn't expect me to live. No one could tell me why this happened , the sixty four thousand dollar question I suppose. The doctors couldn't unsteratand why I didn't feel my heart jumping around, I didn't then and I still don't now, so I'm confused when I read others say they feel an episode coming on
