I am a 67 year old female and have been diagnosed with AF a year ago after having a TIA which came out of the blue. I was full of energy and thought to be very healthy. I am reading all your great comments and advise and I am hoping someone will be able to give me some information. I am taking perindopril and Apixaban, no other meds. Sometimes I think it's the medication that makes me feel less energetic but that's most likely not the case. My heart rate is on average 55.
Sometimes 45and rarely 35 but never over 60. I hear my irregular pulse 24 hrs in both of my ears. My energy level is up and down . Some days I feel fit and healthy. Otherwise I don't have any bad symptoms. But any sort of excitement, good or bad gives me a jelly like feeling throughout. That is the best way I can describe this.
I was told that I have AF but due to my irregular rythem beta blockers are a no for me. I do understand this and I did read everything about AF and Bradycardia what I could find but nothing really fits. I am unsure and anxious what is really wrong with me or am I very lucky at the moment and things will get worse in the future.
I do hope this isn't too confusing and someone has a similar problem and can put me more at ease.
