I am sure there are probably loads of posts about this but I am a confused 63 year old struggling to master social media. Its taken me ten minutes to work out how to start a message (well hopefully). I had tremendous sweats before my Cardioversion which my Consultant said was probably down to the Afib after he fixed my Aflutter. I always pull his leg that he gave me a different version of the same thing when he fixed me. That said, Thursday, I am likely to be coming off the Rivaroxaban. That said I am now getting hot, sweaty flushes not as bad as pre Cardioversion. I am on 100 mg Flecainide morning and evening, probably for the next three months to created a six month post ablation post Cardioversion window to allow my heart to settle. Two noticeable things are the hot sweats (different from the old ones) and a sense of non-specific anxiety. Anyone any views as to whether the Flecainide could be behind it...can’t type Flecainide without thinking of Jack in Father Ted.
