I see this was posted 5 hours ago and I'm wondering how you are now? If your heart as still at that rate and making you feel ill I would seek medical advice.

Wishing you well.


thanks Jean

heart-rate is same now. I am preparing for hospital now. the hospital is 175 kns from here, but I have no other option now.

Hope you get on ok, what a long journey for you! Please let me know how you get on.

just returning to my home.

Just now seeing this, hope you are much better and continue on that way! I had AFib W/RVR once (it's usually just "plain" AFib), and my HR was clocked @ 170! Very uncomfortable and concerning! I opted to go to ER, they sent me home after a few tests, told me to see my regular cardiologist. Luckily I've not had anything but "plain" AFib since. Be well!
