Fast Heart Beat After Atrail Fib
I am 24 years old on my birthday about a month ago I went Drinking and got home around 2.30am. I slept for maybe a hour and woke up around 3.30 am and went to the bathroom. I felt dizzy and my heart was beating fast, around 215 bpm. I tried to keep falling back to sleep and it would not go away around 4.30pm i called the 911 because it was still around 240 bpm. I went to the hospitle and they told me i was in atrail Fibralation. They admited me. Around 4.00am the next day i finialy went back to sinus tech rythem. I was in the hosptile for 3 days They did a ekg and a ecg and a stress test. All the things came out normal. So they put me on verapamil 240mg. I have been feeling dizzy and sick the past 3 weeks. I went to the doctors today and she said my heart rate it still to high around 95. I keep taking my heart rate and its averages 110bpm. I am 24 260 pounds and 6 foot tall. I smoke do not have a history of heart diasease and do not drink caffene. Is this normal also could it be caused by me being in atrail fib for so long? please any input would help.

An AFib diagnosis to me strongly suggests some measures to reduce blood clot formation (not a cure, just a risk reduction).  Did your doctor say anything about taking an aspirin or an anticoagulant?  

If your HR is constantly high, I assume you are in permanent AFib.  Is that correct?  If yes, this makes the above question especially important.

They where able to get me out of AFib the next day it brought my pulse from 250bpm to 100bpm I am in a sinus rythem now. But I am still getting a high rate and still having chest pains. I am taking a asprin a day to stop clots.

If you resting HR doesn't get below 100, better below 80, I think it worth talking with your doctor about taking something to lower you HR - a beta blocker is the usual in my experience.  There are generic brand beta blockers that are not expensive, compared to brand names.
