Here we go my first post on here. Brief history. Have had AF since in my 20 's and sm now 52. Very rare and short lived at first but as the years have gone past more violent and longer more frequent episodes. First proper diagnosis 5 years ago and now waiting to have the AB op and on Flecanide 50mg three times a day. Given up smoking two years ago, dont drink and have cut out caffeine. I do like chocolate though, will this cause it?
My main question is after all this time of infrequent short violent episodes (once a moth for up to 2 hrs) my episodes over the past 6 months have become every other day and last up to 4 hrs. Usually happen when I relax on the sofa. Have to lay on my right side in bed or it will kick of. HR 85 to 120, dizziness and feel very tired.
Do I get another ECG or wait until after my trip to Papworth in January?
