I have been stung by fire ants & then Yellow jackets 2 seperate incidences of bee stings, within 1 month. Both times I went into Atrial-Flutter,
and had to have a Cardio-Vasive (Paddles Re-Start & transgeosophigal, then on last time, after less then 1 month treatment, of heart meds. I went into atrial-fib. mode, and have been in that since taking drugs. Allergist test show on blood test, I am highly allergic to Fire Ants, on Yellow Jackets showed low, but wasn't given skin test, as Allergist was afraid of adverse reactions.
!) Could Heart Meds. started my heart on Atrial-Fibs.?
