To those more experienced members I'd like to ask a question.
My husband's first experience of AF was a period of fast AF (up to 180 and 130 at rest) with shooting pains over his heart and lips turning blue. It didn't respond to drugs and lasted till he was Cardioverted, when he had two weeks of NSR, then back to fast AF till he was given Amiodarone. A few days of Amiodarone and he went back into NSR and has stayed there ever since.
He doesn't ever go in and out of AF, he's either in it for weeks or out of it.
I keep copious notes and can honestly say that until he ended up in hospital in October, he's never had AF or even a hint of anything amiss.
After several months of NSR he says he's never felt better in his life. I might add that he's on a much healthier diet including supplements and is getting more rest, but even so.
I understand from reading on this site that people go into AF and convert back. He's never converted on his own. But then he's had no other episodes of AF.
I'm hugely puzzled. I know everyone is different, but it seems that whatever treatment he's having, both drugs and lifestyle, is working well. Or is it?
I need to understand this condition so as to help him, so could anyone explain this, please??
