The cardiologist believes me to have an enlarge left atrium which appears to be causing the AF. I am a cyclist and walker 72 yoa and feel fit and I no symtoms. Tried the classic beta-blockers and the all make me ill. A week ago I went to A&E with an HR of 166 bpm, up from 120bpm, wihilst taking Metoprolol. Came out of hospital on Digoxin. After further consultaion with my cardiologist I am now on Digoxin 250mcg and Ramipril 125mcg. Thankfully without side effects. I continue to be very active and shall be skiing for a week quite soon.
Is anyone else in the situation and would they share their knowledge and experience.
