Hearts
« on: March 19, 2011, 09:53:34 AM »
Looking for information ladies !
this week hasn't been one of the best health wise .
I suffered an Atrial Fibrillation .
for those like me who hasn't got a clue what this is , it's when the heart goes mad up to 180 beats a minute ! This lasted for two hours with an ambulance trip to the hospital .
It eventually righted itself and left me feeling exhausted .There is no obvious cause for this in my case
it was totally out of the blue .
what I am asking if anyone has any experience of this ? I have been told it will have to be investigated
but was allowed home meanwhile .
It was a scary moment and I'm told could reoccur at any time ....Gulp !

Well, I don't have any information for you, but I did want to tell you I hope it isn't serious and that it doesn't happen often. That sounds very frightening. I am glad you are okay. Keep us posted, LL!

LL,

That sounds like it was scary!

I'm pretty sure thats what a friend of mine had and she had some meds she took for some time.
Did they give you some meds in case of a recurrence?

In the end, she had a procedure , pretty minor, on the electrical system of the heart, not she's fine.

The workups aren't so difficult, I had one a couple of years ago as I have had an irregular ekg for
many many years, even had an angiogram and the pre-procedure jitters were difficult, but the procedue
itself was just time consuming but not too difficult.  I ended up as a graduate of the heart clinic.

have you done some online research about the condition?

So sorry to hear that, but glad you're OK for the time being. Here's hoping you get a handle on it and it doesn't recurr. Hugs..

I know very lettle about it. I had a friend who had it like you describe...but she passed on from something else. When it is investigated, you will probably get a lot more informtions. Sending love...
