I was diagnosed with afib after an admission to A&E in August this year. My heart rate was 200+ bpm. It reverted back to SR overnight but was prepared for cardioversion. My meds are bisoprolol 7.5, ramipril 5mg and rivaroxaban 20mg. I feel awful crippling anxiety constantly to the point of it controlling my life. I don't know how to start living again. I couldn't go back to my job as a HCA, as occupational health said I was at risk of haemorrhage from any unprovoked attack from a patient because of the rivaroxaban. They're not proactive in finding me an alternative role which was recommended, so I'm just sitting here and I know my contract will be terminated on 8th Jan 2016. I receive SSP which is not livable. I feel like I'm in a whirlpool, and I don't know how to get out. I need to lift my mood and start living again. Any advice would be greatly appreciated😊
