The cardiologist told me that I had a "very small" increased risk of stroke. However, as I have discovered it could be 5x the normal persons risk, I need to know what that risk was! For example, if my pre-AF risk was 1 person in 1,000,000 then the increase is, indeed negligible. However, if it was 1 in 20, the increase in risk is enormous! Is there anywhere where I can go to find my pre-AF risk? I can't decide if I need anticoagulation as I score 1 on CHADS2, but I am very overweight, and take a large number of other drugs, as I have a chronic pain disorder and Osteoarthritis! Anyone know a link?
