My worst Afib yet. Yesterday at about 6pm I had a bout of PAF. Heartbeat was iregular and just under 100bpm. Took an extra Sotalol as advised and went back to normal rhythm after a couple of hours or so. Went to bed at around midnight, and, after dozing off, woke with Afib, *again*. After another Sotalol nothing changed so I rang for advice. They said that they would do an ECG in an ambulance and take things from there. The ambulanceman was very helpful; he confirmed that I had Afib but said as it was only at about 75bpm it was ok to go to sleep and no need to go to A and E. He also said that *he* had Afib a couple of times a week and took Sotalol too! Said the heart would likely go back to rhythm in the morning. Went to bed and slept for a couple of hours, but, unfortunately, as I write this I still have the afib with a heartbeat of about 75bpm. So I may have gone from PAF to permanent -this is the longest episode I have had ( currently about 7+ hours). Heart skipping and jumping all over the place. Ironically, I have my first appointment with the consulatant today. Not sure what he will say or do. V miserable and worried indeed and not sure how long this will last or if it is permanent how I will cope.
