Hi guys - I'm just wanting to pick your brains on a few things I've been thinking about, (went into af for the first time 2 months ago and was cardioverted - all tests and scans came back ok and I'm not currently on any medication)
1 - I'm going on holiday to India and was wondering if I could be prescribed any medication incase I go into af over there as I've read that some people have a "pill in the pocket" ?
2 - if I went into af abroad could I fly home whilst in af ?

Have you been referred to a Cardiologist?
I first sufered an attack last July and they said at the time that there was no evidence of AF (as they hadn't 'captured the episode at its worst)... BUT in September it recurred and it was really, really bad and I wouldn't want to have been in any other place than A&E or a hospital to bring the rate down.
Not to be negative, I don't think an airline would take you on board with AF as it really does need careful monitoring and there's also the issue of what you currently should declare to your insurers.
I sincerely hope that you don't have a recurrence, but I would strongly advise you to speak to your GP to try and get to the root of what occurred 2 months ago or seek a second opinion prior to your holiday.
The more people who raise this as an issue and an 'unmet' treatment the better.
