Hi all first time posting I have read a lot of posts and it's nice to know I am not alone as I have felt. Well I am 36 years old dad of 2 boys I weight train and work as a builder. I started getting breathlessness and pains in my chest so after around 4 weeks I went to my GP in November 2016 had an ECG and was diagnosed with dreaded AF. I was put on bisoprolol 5mg and rivaroxaban 20mg given a leaflet and told I'll see a cardiologist in January. Cardiologist booked a cardioversion for February that was cancelled by the hospital booked another for march that was also cancelled so another was booked for April and I finally had my cardioversion. It was successful apart from biting my tongue during the procedure and feeling rather sore for 4 days I thought great it's over!! We'll just today I decided to do some cardio as I haven't been to the gym in months and really miss keeping fit. Anyway I done 5 mins on the rowing machine checked my pulse and noticed it skipping rapidly and has done so for the last 3 hours also pulpitations. So is this normal will I go back into nsr or am i destined to stay in constant AF?? Any advice would be very appreciated. Sorry if I babbled on I am just really concerned about the impact this is having on me and my familys life.
