Went into AF yesterday at 4.15pm and I could have cried with disappointment. It is one year since it last happened and 10 months before that was my first one. I am on apixaban and use Bisoprolol as PIP because of slow heartbeat, around 48bpm. I have taken 1 tablet yesterday and another one today, 1.25mg. As it happened I had an appt with my Dr at 5.30pm for another problem, painful knee. He didn't seem concerned and just felt my pulse and said yes you are in AF and to take one tablet and then another 6 hours later. I asked him should I go to AandE after 12 hours and he said unless I had pains or I was worried I should stay away. He said it would go back to normal but this is the longest ever so I am worried. It also feels different, last time it was very fast discharged from hospital with notes saying fast AF. Is it a good sign that it is slower but very disorganised, I know this is silly but I am worried that the Bisoprolol will make it so slow that it will stop. Thinking of buying a Kardia but am useless with machines, are they difficult to use and set up, I have an Apple I pad, thanks for listening, Heather
