Hi, I have paroxysmal AF and had an episode about 8 years ago where they gave me Flecanide and brought my heart back to normal rhythm. Since then I've had the occasional flutters but nothing major. I did have some problems with side effects of Bisoprolol but that has improved.
On Tuesday this week, I started feeling like my heart was missing a beat. This was happening every few minutes and felt quite uncomfortable. I was advised by 111 to go to accident and emergency. They couldn't find anything on the ECG and was asked to come back yesterday to see a doctor. They again couldn't find anything on the ECG and said unless I had chest pain then they wouldn't do anything. Last night I was on a night shift and the fluttering and heart skipping beats started again. My work place was quite warm and I was sweating profusely as I was doing jobs, especially from my head.
The fluttering and skipped beats have continued today and I saw my GP who said again unless I had chest pain or shortness of breath not to go to accident and emergency. He said if the symptoms continue over the next two weeks to go back and see him. I would really appreciate some advice about this and the sweating which when I'm in a cooler room is better and I haven't had sweating like this before.
