This is my first post, so maybe a bit of a background to see if anybody has experienced anything similar.
I was admitted to hospital in 2011 with suspected heart problems with AF, but this was later confirmed as a functional episode of hypoadrenalism and I was on cortisol replacement for about 18 months. At the beginning of 2016 I started having paroxysmal episodes of AF again, lasting about 18 hours each time and leaving me feeling exhausted. In my case, heart beat is irregular and the rate varies from the low 50s to around 120 bpm during these episodes, with a normal resting heart rate of around 55-60. I’ve had a heart echo and have no apparent underlying heart condition and the treatment I’m on at present is a pill-in-pocket approach of 200mg flecainide at onset; this normally shortens the attack. I wonder if anybody has experienced similar symptoms and how they cope with the accompanying exhaustion etc.
