I have PAF diagnosed 2014 in hospital with irregular heartbeat of around 170bpm, I am on Apixaban and because of low heartbeat of around 48bpm I cannot take bisoprolol so use it as PIP as recommended by my Dr. Yesterday I was out shopping and when I got home went into bedroom to leave my handbag back. All of a sudden without warning I thought I was going to pass out, called to my husband that I didn't feel good and made it to the bed to lie down. I feel if I hadn't made it to the bed I would have fell to the floor, he took my pulse which was around 60 but not in AF. It took about an hour to feel I was back to 'normal'. Does anyone have any ideas to what might have caused this, I am now frightened to go out alone or drive. My Dr is on holiday for two weeks and don't want to go to another Dr who doesn't know me. Hope it wasn't a mini stroke but there were no other signs. Thanks for reading.
