Would really appreciate any ideas or thoughts on my next steps.
Basic history as fast as possible:
AF for four years
2 versions and 3 ablations
Reasonably successful as permanent af now gone and only go into AF very occasionally and pill in the pocket works within a couple of hours
Xarelto 20mg daily
Flecainide 100mg pill in the pocket 200mg if not clear in 30 mins
Bisoprolol 1.25 mg daily
Just reduced Bisoprolol from 2.5 due to low resting heart rate (low 50's) and low blood pressure. Effect has been minimal now heart rate mid 50's and blood pressure still low.
My problem is I still feel rubbish. Worst than before my last ablation. Tiredness everyday and dizzy spells throughout the day. There are a few anxiety issues which I'm sure can account for some of the dizziness but many times it just comes on without anxiety.
I have my meeting with the cardiologist in about 3 weeks and I want to go armed and ready for a discussion as these meetings don't come around very often.
I would love to hear your views on what my next steps could be. Another ablation is not an option as after the last one I was told they had done as much as possible. Why do I feel so rubbish when I'm in sinus rhythm? Unless I'm in AF heart behaves other than occasional fast spell but that is usually only in the low 90's at the most.
Is it the drugs?
Could it be something else underlying?
Are there any other treatments they could try.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have a great weekend.
