Hi everybody. I am really new to this so be gentle with me! I am 55 yrs and just been diagnosed with AF. I am waiting to have a heart scan before a see a Cardiologist. I had my first attack just under 3 weeks ago and it was just awful as it also led to a panic attack. I was given a beta blocker 2.5 mg Bisoprolol which helped. The episode went on for more or less 3 hours and it knocked me for nearly 2 days. In between that episode I have had 3 attacks lasting up 4-5 seconds. The doc today has put me on this medication permanently. Did anybody else suffer anxiety as I am. Just taking this tablet today has made me very anxious.
