Hi, Just been diagnosed with paroxysmal atrial fibralation and on my third dose of Rivaroxaban 20mg. This is now on top of several other medical issues including really bad GERD. I was diagnosed in A&E after an hour of palpitations on Friday night followed by three hours on Saturday morning. Called 101 and they sent an ambulance round. The palpalations lasted for another 3-4 hours and was fully recorded on an ecg. Bloods all ok and pulse in normal range. The A&E doctor has referred me to the AF clinic.
Can anyone tell me what I should do next for some peace of mind?
Plus The list of side effects from Rivaroxaban looks horrific. Has anyone been on this drug and can tell me how they faired?
Any inspirational comments gratefully received!
Kind regards to all
