Daily Symptoms

With Afib, I feel like I suffer with daily symptoms like fatique, palpitations, some dizziness but I'm not having an Afib episode such as the tachycardia-racing heart bpm up and down, my blood pressure has been normal to low and my beats per minute are low but still have daily symptoms.

    I, too, used to have symptoms but my hr was low (40-60) so no Afib.  I went into constant Aflutter and ended up with 6 hour ablation end of January.  At my May 8 EP visit, he said all was good and took me off of Flecainide....no more palpitations and I am feeling better than since I was diagnosed with Afib in 2015.  Now I wonder how much the Flecainide was at fault?  Just happy for the good days I’m enjoying now.  Hope you get some solution for your symptoms soon.

    Ever since my afib was diagnosed last fall and I went on sotalol, my heart rate is between 55-65 and my BP about 120 over 80. I had an ablation on Feb. 28 and afterward I was getting scary palpitations for about the first five weeks. Those have subsided, thank goodness, and now I get palpitations every once in a while for about 10 seconds to a minute. Those I can handle because I have confidence they are going to go away. Haven't had any afib since the ablation. All the palpitations are extremely even, just faster than my normal heartbeat. I am still on sotalol, eliquis, imdur, lipitor and lisinopril. Hopefully, my EP will begin to reduce them sometime over the next few months.
