Have just visited my GP with a suspected ear infection. Which is just viral by the way, and she did the usual tests, of pulse, listening to the heart and BP, etc.
My af felt a little symptomatic but I wasn't worried or felt the need to seek medical attention.
My pulse rate was 136bpm, my heart rhythm was as she described as irregularly irregular and because of this she couldn't get a blood pressure reading either on the digital monitor or manual one after many attempts.
The Dr couldn't was a little concerned at my symptoms and couldn't understand that with the readings she was taking, why I wasn't feeling much worse than i was! She said that normally people are 'flat out' and need attention!
Do you think you can get used to having the symptoms? Does your body adjust to coping with AF, the longer you're having extensive episodes, of an irregular, racing heartbeat, as I am?
Although I did have all the usual symptoms of AF, I tend to try and get along with it, because it is now my 'normal'. This is how I feel all the time!
Anyone else feel like this?
