A recent post on here asked when to go to A+E when in AF. Lots of very different replies were given which has made me wonder whether we are all talking about different types of AF. As I see it AF is when the heart is beating out of rhythm and isn't necessarily racing. However because I have Paroxysmal AF - where my heart 'sometimes' constantly races up to 180bpm and makes me feel really ill I always view those words AF as meaning that, which is probably quite wrong. In between my attacks my heart beats fairly normal.
Are there any people on this site who talk about going to A+E when their heart beat is out of sync, but not necessarily going very fast?
What type of AF do others on this forum have?
