its been sometime since I last came on here as I seem to be fairly stable on Dronedarone at the moment. My new worry is that on Monday my 18 year old grandaughter had a bout of palpitations that really frightened her and she felt she was going to pass out. Im not sure if this has happened before but it really took her by surprise. She has for quite a few years had problems with very severe headaches and tiredness for which she has been treated with several different drugs.
With no sucess.
I got her to get a doctor appointment for the next day, which she did and mentioned to him that I have had AF for some years and that her mother also gets palpitations also her uncle and second cousin. He said it was very unlikely at her age that she would have something like AF but he would do an Ecg and blood test today.
She was feeling fine had the ecg at 8.15am and went home.... by 11am the doctor was on the phone telling her that it had showed signs of AF and that he was refering her to a cardiologist. I was amazed to be honest.
My question is......does anyone think that the headaches are due to AF and maybe the tiredness too. She is the mum of an 8 month old but was always sleeping a lot before the baby came along. And what can be done at this young age. Does anyone know of anyone else of this age with this.
Sorry to have rambled on xx
