Im 35 and I had my second bout of afib last Friday, my heart was going to fast I felt faint, out of breath and weak. It took 4 hours to reduce with some drugs from hospital. But, after that, they just kicked me out and said 'make an appointment with cardiology'! I have done a fair bit of reading and realise it porbably isn't life threatening at the moment but need a check up. Last time time it happened the tests didn't show anything but I also thought the consultant had lost my results
I just wondered how people find it and get their head around the fact it could happen again at any minute (I can't recognise a common trigger). I'm booked for a cardiology appointment on the NHS which should come to in a month. Is there anything I should do in the mean time? I've felt really tired since it happened and feel really out of breath and tired today - but that may be all in my head.
I also am thinking about going privately as pychologically the worry is actually causing more harm than my heart!
Any words of wisdom.would be greatly recieved.
