Hello everyone - just joined you. I have had Paroxysmal AF for nearly 20 years. I take medication have had five ablations. In the last three years the episodes have become more frequent, but I could handle that if only the episodes were not so debilitating.
In my particlular case the AF starts and from then on I dare not move, because my pulse will soar to frightening rates - 250 plus. So I pretty much always go to hospital, where I feel safer and it usually reverts after a few hours.
The unpredictability of these episodes is very restricting and so after resisting for many years I am having a 2 lead pacemaker inserted next Wednesday and I have to tell you I am pretty scared. Any advice would be welcome.
