Have basically come here because I really need someone too talk to with how depressed and down i'm getting.
Basically to give you an understanding of what im going through, i've had palpitations/ heart racing/ skipped beats etc since the age of about 16 until I woke up last September with a tightness/pressure in my chest that can only be described as what I thought was a heart attack. Pulse was unreadable with how fast/erratic it was going, so I phoned the ambulance. Was taken into hospital straight to the resuscitation unit where they were going to perform a cardioversion because I had been in fast atrial fibrillation for nearly two hours, when all of a sudden my heart went back into sinus rhythm. Two weeks later, with no episodes in between I was referred to a Cardiologist who diagnosed me with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation and prescribed me with Bisoprolol 2.5mg to take daily and Flecainide too take if I go into Afib. Fortunately since then I have not gone into fast Afib, or so I think, but litereally every day & night since, I get lots of PVC's/PAC'S/Ectopic beats whatever you want too call them, And they are the most scary horrific feeling in my chest almost too hard to explain, could call it a skipped beat feeling but times that by 100 and I feel each and every one of them and just dont know what too do. I just want my old life back. Never thought this would happen too me so young, Its also getting my parents down because they dont understand how they feel and i'm always irritable because I feel its impossible to live with them.
Any comments would be really helpful guys as am just feeling so down and would love to talk to anyone about it.
