Since being diagnosed with PAF back in March 2014 it has been somewhat of a turbulent journey to say the least. I have tried different Sotalol and bisoprolol and neither seemed to have much effect. I have been prescribed Flecainide as a PIP which I haven't used yet as normally my episodes revert in about an hour or so. My challenge is more when I'm in afib. To my knowledge when I'm in afib I can feel my heart jumping about all over the place yet on more than one occasion I have suffered very similar symptoms to afib like sweating, lightheadedness, tight chest, etc but checking my pulse I do not seem to be in afib? I also get a fullness sensation in my ears which is not a classi sign of afib. I have seen a cardiologist an EP yet still feel as bad as I did 9 months ago.
To sum up I suppose my query is can you be in afib and not know your in afib even by checking your pulse?
