Hi,Have posted several times in past on all aspects of AF - was diagnosed over 2yrs ago and have been struggling ever since. Had an ablation last March but seemed worse afterwards - was getting hugely swinging BP, terrible headaches, pounding heart etc I somehow thought my symptoms were far more severe than others with AF but my doctors ignored my descriptions and put them down to anxiety.
Am currently in middle of multiple tests but looks like I have 2 Phoechromocytomas - one is rare but even more rare to have 2. These can have been causing my heart symptoms all along. I feel vindicated that I was right in feeling it was more than AF but also scared at the prospect of having both my adrenal glands removed - a life changing operation I think.
This is a cautionary tale that sometimes doctors can have tunnel vision and don't look at the wider picture.
Thanks to everyone for your support with AF over the last 2 yrs.
