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.

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!

Both med fixes. . An ablation is the only real answer.s and cardioversion are temporary/band aid
