I have just been diagnosed with AF after suffering frequent episodes over the last 2 months. I was born with a heart condition which was operated on in 1973.
The consultant I saw felt the previous surgery was the likely cause of the AF.
I have always suffered with anxiety but since this I have become severely depressed. My current quality of life is very low and am not sleeping, eating etc.
My GP and cardiologist have both said it is very unwise to take antidepressants as they can add to the arrhythmia so I feel in a never ending spiral.
Has anyone else had this problem?
