Hi folks, very pleased to have found this website as I've only been accessing the ones in the US. I was diagnosed with AF in November but got virtually no information from the cardiologist or the GP. Put on Apixaban and Bisoprolol (5mg) and have felt rubbish since then which I assume is the latter now I've looked at posts on this site. I'm tired all the time and a bit depressed if I'm honest. I've had problems with anxiety accompanied by an irregular heart rate since my 30's (now 66) but it was always put down to stress and monitors haven't picked up on AF until now. I'm just wondering if my former episodes have now 'hardwired' the irregularities to bring on AF?
I think it's now under control but I do wonder about changing the beta blocker to see if I feel less like the living dead would help? As seems to be the case for so many people, you get little support from the health professionals and I've been signed off from the cardiologist but I do wonder if having access to an EP would be helpful?
All advice gratefully received! Thanks.
