I was diagnosed with AF in September and have had two hospital stays, a cardioversion and am taking a cocktail of drugs, including bisoprolol
I have never been really conscious of palpitations but I was admitted to hospital because of tachycardia and pain in my shoulder and neck.
Since taking the drugs prescribed (beta blocker and apixaban), I have had no pain or palpitations which is great. However, I am wondering if the shoulder and neck pain is a symptom of AF? The doctors seemed to think it could be angina, but I've now had a CT scan and an angiogram and there's no heart disease present.
Can AF cause pain of the kind that I described? I feel Iit must be heart-related if it has stopped after my taking the drugs.
