Was diagnosed with AF about three weeks ago. Very irregular erratic pulse and fluttering in the chest aptly described as a wet fish flopping around. Felt unwell. Was electrically cardioverted in emergency and had a drop in pulse rate and blood pressure afterward but back in sinus rythmn. Spent a couple days in hospital;. Put on Sotalol 80mg twice a day and rivaroxiban, blood thinner. Had my second attack a day ago, night again and went to emergency. IV Magnesium, IV fluids and Sotalol 80mg. Spontaneously reverted seven hours later. Have now had Sotalol upped to 120mg, hoping to control the events. Both times experienced copious urination.
