So I've finally had all the relevant tests - echocardiogram, many ECG's, blood tests (including full blood count) and 24-hour urine test - and have been made an appointment on 1st March to see a renowned EP specialist, apparently with over 35 years experience. I'm happy that I'm finally being dealt with - credit to a doctor's secretary - and it obviously is a relief.
However, I'm still very on edge, especially with these damn ectopics, which are a daily occurrence. Felt my pulse earlier and it'd stopped, but started again as normal a second or two later. Really annoying, and frightening. Do you guys get that a lot with AFib, and what are your methods of coping with them? I realise that most people get them, but its hard to tell how many I'm having per day, so I'm unsure as to the severity of my ectopics. Its very up and down for me at the moment, but its nice to know I can post on here without feeling ashamed.
Thanks for all those who offered advice on how best to handle my situation, as regards to getting seen etc.
