I tend to go into afib between midnight and 2am. Anyone else like that? I would say it is 90% of the time. Is this normal?
I have paroxysmal afib. Finally confirmed in 2013. I can remember my heart flopping around like a fish out of water when I was a child. That would be 45 years previously. I have low bp 95/55 and pulse 50 I am on verapamil (calcium channel blocker). Digoxin has just been added as my pill in the pocket (propathenone) leaves me so sick after I take it. I was on it daily for 2 years, but had to stop. It will still be my pill in the pocket though. I have tried and failed metoprolol diltiazem and a few more. Digoxin is because I can't go on anything that would lower my pulse.
I go into violent afib. Every time. Like I don't need to take my pulse, I can feel it in my chest and back and I can hear it in my ears. Is this normal?
Sorry this is so long. I'm just not understanding how people can have this constantly?
My protocol from my Dr is to take my pill in the pocket after only an hour of afib. If it doesn't work then I am to get to the hospital.
