Hello, I have just joined and this is my first post.
I was a high level competitive athlete till about 15 years ago, I am now in my early 70's. Last November I visited my GP for something unrelated, while there, he took my pulse and said it was all over the place and suspected AF, an ECG and blood test confirmed this.
I don't have any symptoms, only, for me a raised resting pulse, not high, around 85 bpm, my pulse as athlete was about 30. Im on Rivaroxoban and Amiodarone, the Amiodarone has brought my pulse down to 50 - 55 bpm
I walk 6 to 10 miles most days over hilly terrain, never out of breath, only breathing slightly more on the steep hills.
Is it common to have AF and feel fairly normal?
