Pain between shoulder blades

When I am having a particularly bad attack of AF and my heart has been 'dancing' for a while I sometimes get a pain between my shoulder blades and sometimes a stitch like twinge in my chest and I wonder does anyone else have weird pains and sensations. I have paroxysmal AF and take flecainide as pip. And am awaiting an ablation, would be grateful for any replies.

I'm no expert but these pains may be due to insufficient oxygen during the bad attacks of AF- I think it is ALWAYS worth getting any chest pain checked out during AF- don't be put off going to A and E- better safe than sorry!!


Sounds pretty normal to me but do get checked if you are at all concerned. A and E is alwys an option.
