I'm back. I was so touched by all of the kindness and support (as well as practical advice) which my first post generated, a bit of me is wondering whether I should quit while I'm ahead.
Except I do have another question...
I'm in sinus rhythm - but still feel far from tickity boo. I'm generally tired and a little bit nauseous, plus I get headaches much more frequently than I did before I first fell foul of this charming condition. I also find climbing a steep flight of stairs, or rushing for a bus, makes my heart pound and my head spin. Is this normal? I imagined that if you weren't out of rhythm, you'd be okay.
I have been struggling to get my drugs balance right, though, and that's led to a bout of gastritis and a stay in hospital, plus my last full episode of AF was only 14 days ago and that also saw me in hospital, too! Neither of these is likely to leave a person feeling totally unaffected I would imagine.
Further, I am aware that I remain extremely anxious - and perhaps this is playing a key role. Indeed, the one thing which hasn't really settled at all since diagnosis, is that. And that, in turn, affects my sleep and my ability to focus and concentrate. But I can't believe it's entirely responsible for the rocky health.
Could anyone advise, me please? And does it get any easier? I'm hoping, eventually, to get back to some cycling and tennis but I feel, currently that this is A LONG way off.
Thanks again for listening.
