I had a bit of an episode 10 days ago in the early hours of the morning following fairly constant palpitations for 24 hrs. I have had various flutters and flops in the past but this was something else - I had taken a sleeping pill and dozed off but went to GP next day. He.spoke about investigating afib and examined me - I didn't have raised HR and he took bloods. From that time I have had a constant.ant feeling of occasional missed/ extra beat it's subtle but disturbing. I ended up at A &E one morning after a particular bad night but the ECG was fine. I am now waiting for 24 HR monitor which will be 6 weeks.... I don't feel well, can't sleep and a little dizzy and light headed. GP has given me propronalol but hesitant to take because I have underactive thyroid which is already under medicated (he won't change dose). I am already on warfarin for an unrelated condition.
Question is what can I do next I really need the monitor now I think - it is always worse at night and I am worn out. How speedily did others get a diagnosis?
