Hello all. I am 61 years old and have had minor afib for many years. This past June it took off and I was in the hospital for 10 days while they tried to get me back into rhythm by tinkering with drugs and doses. I left the hosptial on fleccainide, propanolol and some stuff for my BP. After a few weeks of flecc' I was having trouble sleeping and having vivid dreams. I thought it might be the propanalol, so Dr switched me to Sotalol. Sotalol hasn't been too effective so we are going to try Rhytmol. An ablation was not successful.
Like many of the entries I have read on this site, I am on an emotional rolloer coaster. Dr tells me, as others have said here, they are not life threatening, but those who have not experienced thir ticker jumping around in the thier chest don't get it.
So, I am looking to make some new "freinds" and find some support. I think I am in the right place! :-) Looking forward to some conversations.
