I have suffered from gout for a few years ( about 1 attack a year) that I usually treat with Indometacin, a prescription NSAID. I was diagnosed with persistent AF in May and currently take Bisoprolol and Apaxaban as I'm due to have a cardioversion next month.
I woke up last night with pain in my right foot and have been hobbling about all day in agony. I believe this was triggered by dehydration, as by my own admission I did not drink enough water yesterday. I also believe dehydration is a AF trigger for me. As I can no longer take NSAIDs is there any other strong pain killer any one else takes? I have had paracetamol today but it doesn't help much.
