Hi everyone recently diagnosed with PAF (March 2018) started to feel under the weather about 8 months ago drained tired heart flutters and hot sweats picked up every illness (work in school). To be honest thought it was the menopause went to doctor as finally affecting my work. Had raft of tests and no not menopause (well not yet anyway) finally saw cardiologist two weeks ago and been removed from beta-blockers GP had put me on in January due to high blood pressure and replaced with Flecainide and Apixaban still scheduled for Echo cardiogram next week.
To be honest the flecainide seems to work for the main flutters but still have slight flutters and still feel light headed at times. I have currently been signed off work for 4 weeks (although doing lots of work at home, I know I shouldn't but do not have anyone to delegate work to) - I have to admit my role is pressurized as a school business manager. Have any of you made adjustments to your working life or changed your career due to PAF?
I have been told lifestyle changes can make a lot of difference - I have joined slimming world and gym will do anything to try and improve but not sure if stressful job and long hours needs to be reevaluated as part of process.
Sorry to for long post but still getting my head round PAF and what it means.
Any comments appreciated
