For years I have suffered lethargy, usually late afternoon/early evening, and I put it down to having A-FIb/A-Flutter and SVT without knowing, but after my ablation last May I felt amazing for the week after the ablation albeit sore, literally like a new man! I had energy, didn't feel tired at all. Then 7 days after the ablation I had a 30-second bout of AF which I expected. But after that, I felt back to my pre-ablation self where I felt a lack of energy and I wake up every morning with a headache like a hangover.
Since then I have partly become used to the tiredness, but I often feel like my life is being wasted where I choose to sleep instead of going out these days. I feel this is affecting both me and my family now, where I struggle to do things I want to do, but mustering the energy is another thing altogether.
Since the ablation, I am on 1.25mg Bisoprolol, 20mg Atorvstatin, 20mg Rivaroxaban.
This afternoon, I was playing with my children on the floor in the bedroom and I felt this wave of tiredness wash over me and I began to close my eyes whilst playing!! I then fell asleep on the floor and the kids then left me and I was asleep for a few minutes. When I woke, my heart rate was faster than normal around 77bpm and I felt like I had a hangover headache, and this urge to sleep again! After around half an hour it passed and I am ok again, but I am getting fed up with it.
I have had blood tests etc and thyroid, kidney, diabetes check etc all ok. So I am at a loss! I have tried taking Biocare Magnesium Taurate. I feel like the Dr's must think I am suffering from Munchausen Syndrome!
I am seeing my EP tomorrow morning, so will naturally bring this up, but wanted to see what you guys thought and might suggest that I could go to my EP with.
Thanks again for all the fab support, this is an amazing sit
