Hello fellow A-fibbers, I'm a young woman in my 20s that has been suffering with this condition and its debilitating symptoms for quite some time, possibly since my childhood. My main symptoms are severe fatigue, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, chest pain, wheezing, pre-syncope and rarely also syncope, nausea, I do also experience blurred vision, pain in my left leg, arm and between my shoulder blades, however I do not know if that's all related.
I'm 170 cm and 57 kg, used to be very active, playing sports etc. and I'm still in a pretty active job (pharmacy), but daily life is getting more exhausting by the day...which is pretty frustrating.
As I am also an asthmatic, I am pretty limited in my options for medicinal treatment, which is why I am on Verapamil. Originally I've been on 240 mg pro-longed release, but I started having ankle oedema which my Cardiologist blamed on the Verapamil and put me down to 120 mg, it hardly gave me any rate-control though, so I was put on three tablets throughout the day, 40 mg immediate-release tablets which made me feel really bad though, so now I'm back up to 180 mg modified-release and it's been much better the past few days. The recent changes have all been made by my lovely GP, bless her heart! Finally somebody who cares...
Well, I hope I posted in the right section, thank you very much for letting me introduce myself!
