Is chest pain and breathlessness a symptom of AF when not having an episode?

Dear all - a deceptively simple question as it turns out because I can't find a simple answer 😕.

I have very clear obvious periods of AF daily but also feel breathless and tight chested almost all the time whether in AF or not. Cardiologist said chest pain wasn't related but it arrived at exactly same time so must be!

Recently began taking verapramil which I thought had cured it but no, back today with a vengeance and feel I just can't take a decent breath. Must be getting enough oxygen though as not light headed. Still scary and debilitating.

With thanks

  • AF an BE SYMPTOM FREE, SO YOU MAY HAVE ONE WITHOUT NOTICING. i SOMETIMES GET VERY SHORT ONES, THAT LEAVE ME WITH CHEST PAINS AND SOME BREATHLESSNESS. (SORRY FOR CAPITALS, ON SCREEN KEYBOARD PLAYING UP)

  • Never leave breathlessness and tight chest to chance. See your GP to check this out.
