Do you think the perception og af has chsnged over the last frw years?
When i was first diagnosed 20 years ago, the attitude of gp's snd csrdiologists seemed to me to be that this is a condition of little consequence- keep taking the pills and live with it. No consideration of th efffects on the suffers lifestyle etc and not even a mention of risk of stroke.
now 15 -20years later i have found a sea change in the medics.
I am not so sure about the general public though. i still get comments like " ...oh i get palpitations" and almost jokes about having a "dicky ticker" etc
I would be interested in the thoughts of others.
