I was diagnosed last month with A-Fib, up to my 70th birthday I took no pills for anything! 2 weeks later I have a very fast pulse, and my husband rushes me into hospital, we live about 3/4 hour drive to nearest A&E so it would take even longer if I called ambulance. I was on drips etc all day in A&E, they were very kind and good to me, this was very scary, I knew nothing about AF before going there, and it was 4am when we left home! I have had no more attacks, (5 weeks), but every day I waken and wonder will this be the day? my husband is scared to leave me, in case I get an attack, I feel fine, the doctor has taken blood to see if I am short of anything, I just want to get back to normal, live as I have done for 70 years, I don't smoke or drink, I am now on beta blockers, and Eliquis, what do others do? I had never heard of this before I got it.
