I have had sick sinus syndrome causing af for 17 years. Pacemaker in situ. 3rd ablation 10 months ago. Af settled really well now. No episodes for a few weeks.
I have been on bisoprolol for the af. But I have really bad arthritis pain whic is helped by ibuprofen which was forbidden by gp due to anti coags and possible stomach bleed from nsaid.
I have dropped the rivaroxaban as I am not in af so I can take ibuprofen. I will resume if af reappears.
I have found magnesium supplements have been so beneficial in calming my heart. I also take lyrica at bedtime for pain relief
Any advice most welcome. Is there a risk of clots whe not in af.
