Had my first noticable Afib spell a couple months ago. Was woken out of a sleep with it and called 911, pulse was around 270. Was not aware of what it was so I believed I was dying. I was hospitalized for 3 days. Blood work, continuous heart monitoring, Nuclear Stress test, calcium scan (result 0) and Echocardiogram was performed. All came back fine. No signs of heart disease or structural abnormalities. I was converted back by IV medication within about 6 hours and have since seen the cardiologist twice and started on Warfarin, intially Sotololol 80mg twice a day but could not tolerate it and was put back in the hospital and taken off. Sotolol was replaced with Metoprolol 12.5 mg twice a day. Heart disease runs heavily in my family and although these test have all came back normal, I'm terrified they have missed something. My life has literally came to a halt, I am terrified to be alone, have slept setting up in a chair since it happened, do not want to get far from the hospital so traveling, or going places without quick ambulance access is out. I'm paralyzed with fear, day in and day out. I've been in the ER 4 times in the last 3 months thinking it was out of ryhthm although it was not. Prior to the Afib I had experienced PVC's for many years so now anytime I feel a skipped beat I call an ambulance thinking it's going to happen again, sometimes the HR is higher but heart is in NSR. I was put on .25 mg of Xanax twice a day and finds it helps for a few hours but the remaining day is filled with anxiety and avoidance of what I've read might trigger it. My life feels horrible at the moment as all I do is set around and fear the next Afib spell. Am I alone in this as far as the fear?
