I was diagnosed with Paroxysmal AFIB 6 months ago. I didn't realize I had it until I was diagnosed during a routine visit to my PVP.
I was sent to ER where I was also told my creatinine level was at 2.1 with 1.27 being normal.
My kidney function has slowly come back in the last 6 months but it has been a scary ride.
I have ultrasound and stress test which all came back good. I should also state my BMI is 23.2, no high blood pressure, no sign of any heart disease.
I exercise daily, doing cardio and resistant training 5-6 days a week. I am currently on Cartia XT 120 mg.
I went almost 6 months and had another afib episode which I felt emwhike I was at home and verified with bp monitor. Went to DR and converted back after 10 hours with e,tra dosage of Cartia ST.
I had another episode 1 week later. This time I stayed at home took an extra Cartia as instructed by my Cardiologist and converted back 5 hours later.
I have an appt with an electrophysiologist in a week and will wear a holster kit before I see him.
I have read a lot and it seems to me I am a good candidate for catheter ablation.
Anybody have thoughts on my assumption?
Sorry for the long post.
