I have suffered PAF for over ten years and have been on Flecanaide for almost that long. I had an ablation for flutter three years ago which was successful but unfortunately still have PAF. Last year my episodes started to come on more often so EP increased dosage from 200 to 300 mgs last June. I haven't had an episode until last night when I started with that familiar thump. I started to take my heart rate which was 57 which is normal for me at rest. My chest was pounding, I could actually count the beats happening in my chest but my rate only fluctuated from 57 to 68. I didn't feel any of the normal irregular chaos as I normally do during an episode so am questioning what was happening to me. I lasted for about 6 hours and was unable to sleep with the pounding . Any opinions would be appreciated , thanks
