Aftet a few events yesterday which resulted in me ending up in A and E ( heart rate was usual 180 in AF but my BP dropped very low so GP called ambulance)..anyway...i took a mild weakness in my left hand..couldn't grip properly. Had CT brain scan which was all fine but am seeing the neurovascular team this morning for tests to make sure nothing untoward happened. I don't think it did and doctor said with prolonged fast AF the weakness may have been caused by nerves which run from heart down keft arm which is why people with heart attacjs sometimes get pain in left arm. Anyway..they are being very thorough and giving me a full MOT which is great. But i have been started on Apixaban. It happened so suddenly I haven't had time to consider how i feel about taking it. Anyone on Apixaban got any advice or has it been easy or difficult being on it?
