    When I was first diagnosed with atrial fibrilation it was trial and error with the medication until the right one was found that kept my Af under control.  So maybe there is need for a change of medication.

    Best wishes.

    Hi Frances - go back to your gp and let them know my ultrasound was also normal the consultant said they sometimes just dont know why - you might just need your medication increased or changed.  hope you feel better soon

    it is a worry but i had the ultrasound which was ok then angiogram which showed up parixysmal atrial fibrillation i also had the 24 hour monitor really it was the monitor that showed up im on medication which has helped    the consultant is talking about  having a ablation but im a bit scared of that  mine all started just a year ago  thought things were much better but this last week im now getting a little pain about 3 x day the right side at the front of my chest   each time i have ecg its  mostly in sinus  i have a good gp but this all takes its time and  i dont know about you but many times i feel real ill  also before i go  remember  to get refered to a consultant wish you al the best

      Warfarin causes a lot of people to feel cold. I know someone who wears an overcoat in summer. It can also commonly cause joint pain and hair loss.

      I asked my doctor if a pacemaker would help and he said not in my case. So a pacemaker is not always the answer I wish it was that simple.

      Coumadin is a tablet been about 2 years
