I am uncertain if the Forum still permits a 'Hyperlink' to be added as above. Should it indeed be the case it does not,simply google A-Fib and go to a reputable Site such as Cleveland Clinic/Mayo Clinic.
Paroxymal A-fib is least problematic,while 'Persistent/Chronic' A-fib can lead to a Stroke/Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) or more serious Tachycardias such as V-Tach/V-Fib.
The first priority is to return your heart rate to some normalcy.This can be done by prescribed medicine,cardioversion/ICD. I recommend discussing with your Cardiologist/Electrphysiologist being placed on anti-coagulants (Coumadin/Warfarin) to help reduce the possibility of stroke.
One may be placed on Anti-Arrythmia medications as well.As you very well know,I run the 'Gammit',if you will in regards to the various Heart Rhythm Disorders.
It is rather late and I will be back to give the time this Topic deserves. I think of you all often..it is good to hear from you all.
Until I get back...
Keep On! Keeping On !
