I was diagnosed by my GP a have AFib in January 2019. he said the cause was probably a chest infection i had the previous month?
i continued to have symptons of irregular heart beat, shortness of breath , tiredness, lethargy,
tightening of the chest.
i had a scan in April and GP then said results were that valves were working fine but AFib continued. ( knew that as symptons continued?)
He referred me to see a cardioligist consultant.
My symptons continue. i am tired all the time, basic tasks make me breathless. i am not sleeping well.
i went back to GP in June and said that i had episodes where i woke gasping for breath during the night and suggested that i may have sleep apnea?
GP now thinks this may have caused Afib?
It now September and i'm still waiting to hear when i will get to see the Consultant? i have not been prescribed any medication?
How long am i expected to wait to see the consultant? i am aware that even when i get to see him all i will get is a twenty minute conversation and no treatment?
