I had a mild heart attack in June 2016. After an angio I was told there was no heart damage, blocked arteries or valve issues. What I did have was PAF. I had a very difficult year last year so put my heart palpitations down to stress. My breathing was really poor and I was constantly tired. The heart attack came as a complete shock. My cardiologist said it was most likely caused by an embolism due to the AF. I am on medication to control my heart rhythm, blood pressure tablets and aspirin. I do not fit the criteria for blood thinners. My general health is so much better but I am struggling to move on. Are there any other AF sufferers who have had a heart attack due to AF and have found a way to live without fear of a repeat episode?
