Hello, new to this so go easy on me, I am just wondering if anyone else out there has had or has been diagnosed as having atrial fibrillation ?
I had my first AF attack about seven months ago it lasted over 24 hours (February 2016), I had to be cardio verted ( shocked ) to get me back into a normal rhythum, I have never been so scared in my life!
And I am dreading it happening again so much so it has more or less taken over my life, I am relatively young (43) and have two young children that I would like to see grow up, but this has got me, some experts say that that's your lot once you have it once you have it for life others say it may be a one off, I am lucky as I have never had health problems before or been depressed or down but this is starting to affect me mentally as well as physically, I think about it every day, I have noticed that now and then I am getting missed heart beats only a few for literally a couple of seconds.
What do you all reckon as this is getting me down, am I doomed to live like this forever or is there hope ?
Thanks for listening sorry for going on 😎
