Hello - I'm in need of a little guidance as I've just been diagnosed with AF and I'm being told a few different things and just wanted to see if anyone else has had or is having similar symptoms. I'm sorry for the length of this post but I'm a little worried and want to get it right in my mind.
I am a 40 year old male and had been to a BBQ on may bank holiday Sunday and went to bed as normal. I woke up on the Monday morning in severe pain around the neck, shoulders and head as if I'd been doing weights or working out heavily. What I did notice was that every time I yawned or wore a seat belt in the car I got a burning stabbing pain in the centre of my chest and I thought I'd over done it in the garden or something. However - I went to GP a week later as the pain had not gone away. The GP did an examination and ECG because of the chest pain and ordered me straight to Acute Medical Unit at the hospital where I was told that following another ECG all was normal that I possibly had Costachondritis and I should go home which I did and the following morning went back to work. However the chest pain would gnaw away and come and go. So I carried on with my life as normal other than the chest pain, working, playing with kids, eating and drinking fine - all was ok until Sunday night just gone. I was in bed and just nodding off when I got a huge spasm of pain in my chest near my breast bone and it was agony so much so my wife called an ambulance . They arrived did an ECG and I was told there and then that I may be in AF but when reaching hospital around an hour later all was ok again. As luck would have it I was due to have an appointment through my health insurance to see a cardiologist on the Monday which I duly went along to and he hasn't said what it is either way just that something isn't right and that I need to see a Electro physiologist to have CT scan asap.
So I just wondered is anyone else having constant chest pain? Can you feel AF all the time?
Any help greatly appreciated
