Heart Fatigue?

Has anyone dealt with this? After about 2 days of an unsettled rhythm, likely caused from the anesthesia from colonoscopy, my rhythm is back to normal. However, i am quite tired and fatigued. It feels as though my heart is tired, if that makes sense. Has anyone else had this happen?

    Every time I have had an AFib episode and then a cardio version, I have felt fatigued for over a week following it. Last week I had an AFib episode that lasted 12 hours, but unlike the others, I went back into NSR without a procedure. However, I have felt so fatigued and lightheaded that I have been unable to function normally. I get different answers from different health care professionals. My cardiologist's NP told me "I should feel fine now that I am back in normal sinus rhythm." However another doctor told me it is normal to feel fatigued after an AFib episode has resolved. Hope you feel much better soon!
