I've been on fleccanaide for 2 months now along with diltiazem. Feel ok, certainly no full on AF episodes and tolerating both meds ok except for some pretty awful constipation a numb toe and sometimes when I stop the car it feels like it rolls a little but it hasn't it's some weird movement side effect. Also some hearing changes ie can't hear so well as well as I used to. Just got my diagnosis in oct 2015 after years of minor eps that became longer and more frequent and finally I sought help.
I might still be having some eps but they seem moderated by the meds. What happens now is that when I get into bed sometimes my heart beats rapidly and forcefully occasionally waking me from sleep. My heart beat feels regular just full on thumping though for a varying time between 1-2 hrs. Opinion sought on if others have this on medication and do you think it is still the rogue impulses firing away.
I see my EP on Tue for the second time and will book my ablation - I think. See the thing is if I stay like this I can deal with it. That's the million $ question though, will I stay like this. I'm 51 yo working nurse with stacks of things still to do. Geez even writing this out has been useful in clarifying a bit.
