Hi all, I have AF diagnosed last December, only on apixaban and to use Bisoprolol as needed, not tried that yet as I have been lucky that I haven't had any more episodes. During the past two weeks my heartbeats have been between 45 and 50 but over the last two days have stayed at 45/47 at rest. This morning whilst using my hairdryer I could feel my heartbeat pounding and it felt like skipped beats so I took my pulse and there was a pause of what seemed like 2\3 seconds between beats then it reverted back to normal quite quickly. Is this something I should be worried about, was my heart trying to go into AF again, hope not. Not seeing EP again until around September when he will discuss pacemaker again but if I am coping OK with slow heartbeat don't want to go there yet, I am 68.
