Last week I drove myself to hospital, thinking I was having a panic attack (I have anxiety and take Valdoxan for it) but instead ended up diagnosed with AFib.
I'm only 32 so was a bit suprised I was getting a cardioversion rather than grabbing some lunch that day.
It took two goes to get it back to normal.
I have yet to see my doctor let alone a cardiologist (and being in a small town with a doctor shortage this should test my anxiety for wait times).
I got the electro cardioversion three days ago and this evening have just experienced two instances of my heart fluttering/palpatating for less than 2 seconds. My chest has felt like there is a bit of air or pressure there for the past 5 hours prior to the two flutters. It still feels like this. But my heart is still pumping in a regular cycle.
At present I've been told to take aspirin daily until my doctor's appointment (another four days away).
Any advice or words of wisdom on what to expect for the next few weeks?
