This is my first post.
I have had Afib but unknown for about 5/6 years. Did not realities or digest it when first told and put on warfarin. Had heart valve op in Jan 2016, this year, op was Ok have tissue valve, but afib went bananas in ICU. Still cant control it, had Amiodarone and Bisoprolol. Got stopped Amiodarone about 6 weeks ago by cardiologist but Bisoprolol upped to 10mg. 5mg in morning and 5 mg at night. No have thyroid problem because of Amiodarone and all the iodine in it. They never told me anything hospital about Amiodarone. Thyroid affects pituitary gland so sleep goes out the door and the afib is worse. I keep a sleep diary. If you really want to see how little sleep and my desperation then please ask and let me have your email. I am desperation I have threatened to take my own life, started self harm but only got my poor wife, who is not in best of health to listen and she is finding it difficult. I just wish had someone on end of phone line even to share and maybe help and understand.
Any thoughts appreciated
