I was diagnosed with persistent AF last summer and after a failed electro Cardioversion I was put on Amiodorone. I have had normal sinus rhythm for about the past 4-5 months, so two weeks ago my cardiologist took me off the amiodorone and I'm due to start a new med next week (can't remember the name!).
Anyway, I was on the train this morning when I suddenly got really acute heart fluttering and some discomfort in my chest. Then I felt really dizzy for a few minutes, I would have fallen over if I want sitting down, and felt quite weak for about 20-30 minutes afterwards.
One ambulance trip later and I'm currently at Leicester Glenfield Hospital having tests. My heart is still in NSR and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong, although I still feel very tired.
I'm wondering if this could have been an AF attack? It was a very different experience to anything I have felt previously and has left me feeling quite shaken.
I'm not after a diagnosis, as I'm sure I will get that son enough here, but had anyone experienced similar symptoms?
I was told that Amiodorone stays in your system for ages after withdrawal, so surely it's not stopped working already!
