I have been on amiodrone months. I heart shocked over 30 days ago & my afib is gone. I want to stop taking amiodrone due to side effects.
Unfortunately it: doesn't work like that. The clinical situation can dictate whether your afib was situational (recent open heart surgery?) or due to other cause. You have about a 30% chance of staying in rhythm without the amiodarone so odds are you will be back in afib in about 3 months if you stop it now. Other medications and procedures could be used to help you stay in rhythm. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I think I have AFib my heart beats faster than usual but within normal range. Is aAFib ok? I'm still young and I'm scared
My heart rate is around 55 however it feels like it's beating hard and I'm aware of every beat. Could I have afib at only 19? Or some other disease
Sure - why not: At your age, atrial fib would be a bit unlikely, but yes, it could certainly be a culprit. The other respondant is correct in stating that we need to capture this on an ekg or a wearable monitor to correctly identify its nature. There should be a good electrophysiologist in galveston if you want to investigate further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please rewrite: The question is generally incomprehensibleGet a more detailed answer ›
Can you have a normal pulse and BP and still be in afib sometimes my
heart is racing but my numbers are fine?
No: Our best understandings of afib require that the heart muscle have undergone changes over a prolonged period of time to enable afib. While it's possible the stress of an accident could have "set off" an afib attack, if it sticks around, you were likely at risk in the first place. A truly severe wreck can bruise the heart, but the fib would pass as the bruise heals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: But be sure and know how well controlled your afib is overall. I have many patients who come to my office who have heart rates in the 70's or 80's at rest and seem fine but with the most minor of activity have heart rates that are wildly out of control. As your doctor about wearing a heart monitor home to see how well controlled you are in your daily life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Every patient should get an attempt at cardioversion however the success arte depends on cardiac chamber sizes, duration of a.Fib. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with afib and put on coumadin (warfarin). How will Coumadin (warfarin) affect my heart?

The Coumadin (warfarin) tends to prevent the clots from occurring. But it also carries the risk of bleeding especially if the blood gets too thin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Always had heart palps, had tests years ago all normal. lately palps increased. Can Atrial Fibrillation just develop? or do you always have it?
Atrial fibrillation: AFib can 'just develop'. If you have anxiety disorder, it will magnify any minimal extrasystoles you may have. There are many monitoring devices, event recorders even implantable but your doctor can best evaluate whether you need aggressive attempts at seeing if you have an arrhythmia and what it is. ...Read more
