    First I just want to say to everyone i know how annoying and scary it is to have atrial fib. I have had it now for so long but still cannot get use to it. I am a nurse with atrial fib who visits the ER at least every other month. So I’m right there with you all. Secondly, i wanted to put out there how you all are doing with antibiotics such as augmentin. I work quite a bit and my husband snores at night so my immunity gets quite broken down. I’m female 59 Currently taking augmentin for another sinus and lung infection. I feel lousy.

    I’m 72 yrs old, always healthy, until 3 years ago when I had what I thought was a panic attack. No, diagnosed as a fib. I’m on a bunch of meds and, other than that not a lot of energy.

    I’ve done some traveling and every time I’m on a plane, I get a bit dizzy and throw up. What is that all about??? I’ve always enjoyed flying but it’s happened the last 4 flights I’ve taken.

    Hi, I started taking denosumab in November 2016, and a few weeks later I had my first afib experience. I am now on Apixaban as a protection. I had my second denosumab jab in May and had terrible hives while in the sun and while on holiday. I have decided not to have my third injection, the side effects are horrible. Thanks for the website.

    Just found this forum! I had an a fib stroke and emergency pacemaker implant in 2003 at age 55. Have been on flecainide 100 mg am and pm since then and never had another a fib attack that lasted more than three minutes. Since April, when I was diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease, I have been taking high then lower doses of prednisone, now have weaned to 5 mg/day. I get every horrible side effect ever noted with prednisone at more than 5 mg. Doctor started me on Imuran 50 mg/day when I was in hospital in July to boost the anti-inflammatory benefits of prednisone. Very few problems. Dr. Told me to double the Imuran dose so I took 50 mg last night and another 50 this morning — and now I have been in raging a fib for more than 6 hours, even after taking two flecainide when it first started. Does this ever get better? I am now really scared to take another Imuran tonight!
