I had 1 episode of afib about a month ago. The er got it under control in about 6 hours.I have not had another episode since. Yet they put me on eliquis and diltiazem er. They did every test you can think of and found nothing wrong with my heart or lungs. At the time i was taking a Steriod and using a inhaler for a sinus infection. Both the cardiologist and the on site dr and that it was probably brought on by the steriods. I bought a Kardia and I use it a couple times a day and have never been back in afib.I also wear a fit bit and my heart stays at aroung 60 to 70. So why the hurry on the blood thinners I hate the feeling they have given me. Anyone have this same experience.?
Thanks for any help I am really having a hard time dealing with this.
