I was diagnosed with AF on Friday after spending the day in A&E. Admitted with 'fast AF' (alarming, my pulse suddenly set off at a great rate and it persisted, I called an ambulance) treated with metoprolol and bisoprolol and went back into sinus rhythm after several hours. Sent home with 5mg of Bisoprolol to take and a letter for my GP.
What happens now? I had blood tests and was wired for ECG all day in the hospital. But now what should I look out for? What tests should I have? Should I wear any heart rate monitor? Should I get a blood pressure monitor?
Found this site and various things on the web which are a godsend to trying to understand all this.
