hi I was diagnosed with a/f at the age of 37 but I am sure I had it for a lot longer I kept having a racing heart and palpitations a couple of years before that but every time I went to the gp they did not believe me they even at one point saying I should go on anti depressants
they honestly thought I was making up my symptoms why I just do not know. eventually I was admitted to hospital one early morning after driving myself there and within 30 min I was told I had A/F by a French doctor who reassured me I would be fine he explained his own mother has had it for years so that calmed me a little and stopped me thinking I was going to die there and then. I seen the heart surgeon in Manchester as I would not use my own local hospital as it has a very bad reputation and has been in special measures for some years. I eventually had the ablation and everything seemed to calm down I have had a couple of incidents of af recently so I'm guessing the ablation did not work on me but when I go for the tests and the heart monitoring my heart dosent seem to go in to af so they can record it . so I am in a situation again that I don't think I am being believed I know my own body and I know when something is wrong anyone got any advice they could share?
