I had a heart attack 8 yrs ago. A-fib started 3 years later. When it first started I got it often. Every day or two. Was prescribed metoprolol for my condition. Episodes decreased to once a week or so. Mine starts with a flutter and then this awful feeling in my body. It's not the actual a-fib that concerns me but the after effects. I am done for about 3 days after. Dizzy, faint feeling, shortness of breath big time. I have to move very slowly and cannot exert myself . Scary feeling. Have passed out once just recently. Have never had ablation or anything done even with my numerous hospital visits. What's with that. I am on all the heart drugs since heart attack. I hate my condition as I cannot plan anything cause if I have an episode I can count on being down for 3 days. Had an episode yesterday and here I am on the couch again. Am 63 and have retired early cause I can't work with the threat. Would appreciate your comments. Thanks
