I have been diagnosed with PAF for just over one year. I have been on Apixoban for one year. The PAF only came at night and I have had no side effects from the Apixoban.
I am generally fit and well, a 69 year old lady. I walk 5/6 miles every day, and in November went on holiday to India of three weeks travelling all around and had a wonderful time, no problems.
So far so good.
However! have just got over a short bout of a viral gastric bug and since then have been experiencing episodes of AF during the day.
my questions are: could the virus have triggered my af to come more often, and during the day when previously only at night?
and also, i have noticed my bp is very low during an attack. this morning 99/55.This scares me - Is this what happens? or is everyone different?
I was very positive about my fib, but this has set me back and would appreciate any feedback.
