I'm 39 and I was diagnosed with AF 4 years ago. Managed well on meds, but I lost my mom a month ago. The day after the funeral I suffered a TIA ( mini stroke) had all the tests done, no permanent damage. I was put on Apixiban. Since being on it, I am constantly dizzy and light headed. Had another admission with symptoms.
They are putting it down to bereavement stress??
Is this right? Normal? Will this dizziness go away?
Update - I've been the GP they didn't seem to think it was side affects of Apixiban, but said to come off them for 3 days and see. Which I did, still the same! Went back on Apixiban, and after seeing another GP they said it sounded like Vertigo! He gave me tablets and there has been a big difference, not completely gone as of yet.
Also after having my TIA, I thought I'd better get my eyes checked. All ok except I failed the visual field test, and now I'm being referred to the hospital! A little worried to be totally honest!
Has anyone gone thru the same??
