I have suffered with tachycardia since I was 16 (now 55) and had many heart tests - all of which came up with nothing! Aged 50 I had a stroke and more tests which showed that I have a PFO - which they said was the reason for my stroke. I was put on a 75ml aspirin and dipyridamole - which I have been on for 5 years. This year I had a heart monitor fitted inside my chest and they now know that when I have a tachycardia - I have AF beats as well. They want to change my present drugs to either Warferin or rivaroxaban. I've been attempting to do some research but can't understand the medical jargon or can't find any unbiased views in layman' language. Can any of you help me with this please?
Thankyou in anticipation.
