Had an ablation in Southampton Hospital in 2004. Bad memories. Machine broke down during procedure. Said never again. But when replacement machine was found and brought in procedure was continued. Was free of PAF for ten years. Sadly PAF came back last year worse than original problem. Waking me at night, chaotic forceful beats; breathless and feel sick and giddy. . . Scary - Into A & E - via 999 calls. Seeing Consultant next week. Feeling desperate and hoping for another ablation. Hoping things have improved since 2004. Husband thinks I'm exagerating my symptoms - says I've cried wolf too many times and refuses to call the paramedics next episode. Says I always get over it eventually. Annoyed I've waken him up. Lonely times. Anyone tried to 'just lay back down and go to sleep' during an episode? Hard.
