Hello all x
Sorry I have not posted in a while having such a terrible time. My partner has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and will be operated on in 2 weeks so my stress levels have been very high and so worried about the future and don’t need this bloody AF at the moment….So this has been happening and could do with your thoughts….
Was ecstatic …. Not had no major incidents in 5 weeks thought I had it under control especially with all the worries I have. Bob & Peter – I took your advice and wrote to Dr Fay and I went to see the AF nurse, Shona at Shipley last week. She was lovely and I felt really at ease with her and YES I am going to be seeing Dr Fay!!! Will be In about 4 weeks so I am really pleased about that.
So last night I was cooking at 7pm and just knew AF was lurking, I took an Alivecor reading and it was 160bpm, I really thought that it would last a couple of hours and that would be it. Nope was still there this morning, I rang Doc who said take another Bisoprolol and she would ring me back in 3 hours and we did every 3 hrs till 6pm tonight and heart rate was still 140bpm and Bp was okay, lowest was 90/60. didn’t feel ill just tired and slightly dizzy. So my Doc said go to A&E – 24 hrs is far too long – I was completely terrified and started crying hysterically - think just a build up of everything with my partner plus my Mums anniversary coming up… so was packing my bag for hospital and sobbing and yes you guessed it back to NSR 55bpm just like that. Could that be my cure – sobbing!!???
Anyway I am so upset about it coming back, never had it so long before at the most 12 hours, does thin mean the bisoprolol are not working anymore (I am on 1.25 daily and that’s it as I am at 0 stroke risk) Does this mean it’s getting worse and will have to up my dose. I am scared it will come back tonight and have no idea what to do – is it likely to? I know none of you have a crystal ball but I am just so scared. I feel like I should be on warfarin but they said the risk of internal bleeding could be as bad, Arghhh so many things to think about and I really need to be fit and healthy for my other half. I feel like leaving it 24 hrs is too long at 160bpm but my Doc said not and I trust her completely – I just don’t know what to do – Someone please send me a cure…lol!!
