Hi guys, I'm 17 y/o girl, been having symptoms of palpitations at least 5 times daily, breathless, dizziness etc. I went to my doctor, they gave me bloods, ECG and event monitor. My bloods and ECG were normal, my event showed paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (said something about the P waves). I was put on beta blockers for high heart rate (avg 110, normally 78). Got referred to cardiologist, he laughed it off never saw event monitor, then told me I was right it's Afib. I had a 48-hr ecg and echocardiogram, which I havent got the results back. I am still getting palpitations and symptoms daily so not sure if the beta blockers are working. I also get chest pain when laughing - is this normal? I just also wanted to ask if this looked normal, it was part of my scan and it looks like Afib, the practioner said nothing was wrong however. I'm just fed up of the daily symptoms, is there anything I can do to relieve it?
