Hello. I was finally diagnosed with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation about 3 weeks ago. My symptoms weren't that bad. My heart used to race for a maximum of 2 minutes and then settle down. Worrying but manageable once I knew what the problem was. I am now on day 5 of Flecainide and can't remember the last time I felt this awful. Tired, brain fog, can't focus which is causing me problems at work. I have an appointment at a coagulation clinic next week. More tablets!
Could anyone give me any advice on whether I really need to take anti arrythmia drugs if my condition is manageable without them? I will be taking blood thinners for the stroke risk.
Not seeing cardiologist for 4 weeks so any advice would be much appreciated.
