Hello,. I have this idea about my missed heart beats..
Well, I had a MI about 6 yrs ago.. I had a stent and felt okay.. About 4 months after MI I had mild vibrations in the chest that turned out to be missed heart beats...they seemed to come and go... I was on all the meds for MI which included Bisoprilol 2.5.. So I'm wondering if the missed heart beats were getting ready to turn into AF but kept down because I was on Bisoprolol, but after a few years the Bisoprolol most have wore off and that's when I had an AF attack? I was put on a higher dose of bisoprilol to 5mg. I haven't had a AF attack yet but have had missed heartbeats. So Im wondering is the bigger dose off bisoprilol keeping the AF away until it wears off again or will I still get more attacks of AF, which I haven't yet? Im wondering about when I do get the next attack of AF, has the bisoprilol worn off again.?
I was diagnosed with AF about two months ago now.. I had an echo about 5 weeks ago and a 24 hr monitor 2 weeks ago, not heard anything yet, but will ring in a weeks time if not herd anything!
Sorry if its l a bit long winded!
