I have known paroxysmal AF which only rarely gives trouble. I am on a blood thinner and beta blocker.
I know several people on here have the same problem and wondered what they do when it starts to happen. This is the first time I have been here on my own when it has happened. My OH died in February - he was a doctor and would tell me when further advice was needed.
I woke up breathless this morning and realised the AF was playing up. I have various bits of kit and am able to monitor the rate and rhythm - rate has veered between 46 and 168 - but is mostly stable at just over 100. SATS went down to 89, but bob around depending on how the rhythm is going.
I am pottering about and not flattened out by it. Last time it happened I was in A&E for a few hours while they monitored it and they sent me home still in AF. I don't really want to do that in the current coronavirus situation - I am better off here at home I think.
What do others do when it starts to play up?
