Hello all. I am an otherwise fit and active 49 yo woman and have been diagnosed (yesterday!) with a-fiib. Episodes lasting a few minutes up to couple hours happenin sporadically although most daya I have at least one episode.
Seeing cardiac doc again next week for meds etc. He has said beta blockers for definite plus possibly blood thinner depending on discussion.
I have 7 year old twins so really need to be around and at full health for quite some time to come!
Main worry right now is that my chest is sore right over my heart. Not tight not short of breath and not getting any worse. Does anyone else have this? I get it after v bad attack - like my heart is bruised almost. Hope this makes sense?!
Would also love to hear from anyone of similar age with a fib - how are you coping?
