I've just been jolted awake by an extremely fast episode of AF, my immediate reaction was to panic... not helpful! It's like putting petrol on a fire!
I've dropped a couple of extra mg of bisoprolol as advised by Dr and tried to control my breathing.
Fortunately I've slipped back in nsr now and my rate is 90.
It's awful when you panic, I knew it was AF but all reasoning went out the window, I was convinced I was experiencing a new and dangerous arrhythmia and my heart was about to give up! Panic & AF together is not nice.
My ablation hasn't stopped my AF completely, but it's certainly made my episodes terminate much quicker, before it would last hours and hours.
Deep breaths..... and relax......
