I had my first encounter with AF in September of 2013. I was put on Biosoporol and Warfarin unti I had a cardioversion in february the following year.
All has been well, until a few nights ago when I woke the morning after and found that I had gone back into AF.
I have been on a low dose of Biosoporol (1.25mg) since the procedure. I also cut my alcohol intake to 2-3 drinks per week and kept exercising as I have always done.
I took myself to the local A&E department and was wired up which confirmed what I already knew. They didn't seem overally concerned that I was in AF and holding a heart rate of 80/90 bpm and told I was in controlled AF. I was then discharged and booked into my local GP later that morning.
The appointment didn't yield much movement apart from a referal to a specialist which would take approx 4 weeks.
He left me on my dose of Biosoporol and toldme to get back intouch if I felt any changes in the symptoms.
I have a feeling of been left in the dark, and as well as been quite worried that it all comes across a bit relaxed by the system when I myself am really worried!!!! Is it just me?
Has anybody felt similar?
Call me a silly worrying fool but its just the way I feel.
I have considered paying for a private consultation, which will happen a lot quicker, just to try get myself a piece of mind.
Has anybody any thoughts?
Thanks for reading.
