Home today after a (mostly) great week in Lanzarote. Sunshine, relaxing, reading - all the normal holiday things of taking a break. On our last night we'd gone for a great meal, strolled back to hotel, read a bit and sleep - when suddenly and without a trigger (as far as I can work out) I go into AF at 2am! This is the first time for a year as I thought the tablets were controlling it. Heart rate was 165 - using my Alivecor, stating I was indeed in AF. Took another Flecainide and waited and worried as I was going home the following day and knew I'd not be able to fly. After 2 hours my heart was 143 by which time I was working out my travel insurance, shall I phone an ambulance, should I wake my husband (no point in us both worrying so didn't) and hey I want to go home!!
Finally at 7am my heart was 75bpm and although I felt weak and shakey I was out of AF.
It was horrid and quite scary and the journey home very long and I was quite edgy. Feeling better today after a good night sleep in my own bed.
Thanks for letting me share this and if I'd had the internet on holiday I'm sure someone would have been awake to reassure me.
