Have become increasingly depressed and feel totally hopeless now .
Diagnosed with afib in January . Have tried bisoprolol which made me feel like the living dead, flecanide which seemed to make afib worse and now on 160mg of verapmil a day but it's not controlling the afib . I now have episodes on and off all day everyday and it's destroying my QOL ...I've gone from being active and positive to being confined to the house most of the time and scared to do anything because of the afib attacks are so aggressive .
I'm due to see a EP next week for first time as felt my cardiologist wasn't very helpful or understanding and I want to push for an ablation but am concerned at putting myself this procedure if it isn't successful and then I'm back to square one .
Am needing help and advice .
Should I up meds ?
Should I go for ablation
At 53 yrs old I feel like my life is over
