Does anyone else have episodes like these? My normal non-AF heart rate is in the low 60s with BP around low-mid 130s/low-mid 70s. When in AF the heart rate doesn't get above low 80s but BP soars to mid-high 150s/high 80s-low90s.
I had such an episode yesterday evening, accompanied by a strong heart beat and pounding in my ears. It was still there when I went to bed and kept me awake for a few hours as the heart beat seemed to be bouncing off the mattress.
This morning, my pulse rate is back in the 60s but BP still up at around 150/80. Not currently being treated for high BP but doctors are aware. On rate control for AF. Often unaware if I am in AF as heart rate isn't high.
