I'm wondering what exactly is AF? I was diagnosed just a couple of months ago and put on Pradaxa and Bisoprolol. I have in the past had a few scary episodes when my heart rate varied between very rapid and slow thumpy beats. But I quite frequently got a simple raised heart rate, occasionally associated with some irregularity. I still get this sometimes, tho' the rapidity is reduced now because of the medication.
Which of these can be described as an AF episode? When would a medical opinion be indicated?
I have been lurking on this site for a week or two and have learnt a lot - much more than I have got from the doctors! Thank you everyone.
