I'm a 15 year old boy and I recently discovered that I probably have afib. How common is this in my age? Can it be cured?
It started in the last month, when I felt something strange in my chest, like butterflies below my heart. It also caused a slight tiredness.. I became really frightened and started to look on the Internet about it. Found out that it's possibly afib. Since then I had a few more episodes, and I really think that this is afib, because the symptoms and the triggers are very similar to those that I have found on the Internet.
I know that I should go to a doctor, but what if I won't have an episode when I'm having the ekg? Even if it is a portable ekg, what if I won't have it for a day, or a week, or a month, for that matter? I know that the doctors won't believe that I have afib.
So is it possible to have afib in this age? And if so, can it be cured? It would be awful to struggle with this, as I'm only 15 years old..
Thanks for reading this, and sorry for my bad English.
