I was diagnosed with AF 7 years ago and no medication but recently it got worse and I was told I needed another Echo Scan and would need Warfarin.
The two really serious bouts have happened whilst I have been asleep and I have woken up with it. I get the missed beats throughout the day regularly now and feel a bit light headed. Blood pressure seems ok mostly and controlled by Ramapril but when this happens it goes really high and terrible headaches. I take Victoza for type 2 Diabetes and have taken up walking, watching what it eat and have lost 2 stone yet this problem has got worse. Victoza slows down the digestive system so it takes 3-4 hours for food to pass through and I do think there is something related to digestive problems and AF but getting a doctor to buy into this is proving very difficult to confirm. I find it quite scary having this and with it getting worse it has made things even more scary so I wonder how others cope with it.
