Hi, I was diagnosed with AF back in april. I'm currently taking Bisolprolol 2.5mg,& Rivaroxaban 20mg per day.
?Since January I have had quite a few medical issues, feeling as one goes another one comes to the point I have now had to take time off work, to which I absolutely hate & doesn't help.
?For about 3mths,to start off with on occasions my skin felt very tender each time in a different location. then with time became longer lasting, to the point I feel sunburned all day every day, usually always on my hands & feet, but accompanied by being anywhere else on my body & though it moves around. As the weather is changing & getting colder I have even resorted to sitting outside in just shorts to try & cool down, even clothing feeling uncomfortable to wear.
?I have seen my gp this morning, & has suggested that due to all my blood tests show nothing to not take my rivaroxaban for 2wks to see if this is the cause.
?Due to the stroke risk I'm very concerned about this. I'm a 42 yr old man,eat healthy, apart from my AF which is occasional I have GERD issues for which I'm having tests for, as I strongly believe food or eating habits have a huge part of my AF,then I believe I'm quite healthy & fit.
?My questions are, has anyone else experienced this sunburn feeling of the skin with this medication,& am I right to be worried about not taking a blood thinner for 2wks?
?My AF can usually come on in the morning as I wake up, lasts between 5mins to an hour, some days no AF. Or if I haven't been able to eat regularly or had a slightly more larger meal than normal. So I'm not constantly in AF, but does this matter?
?I am very anxious & concerned,as taking a blood thinner since being told I have AF has sort of become my one thing that helps me relax as I feel safer on it. Any help, advice will be greatly appreciated, thankyou.
