Future plansTo build a social net work, and to find help with PTSD with out going bankrupted I'v had to go to the ER too many times for A-Fib and this is a financial drain.and makes me more depressed and anxious.
Personal comments Its not the fast heart beats and SOB that bother me as much as the confusion, left sided headaches and drunken feelings that I get when I have these a-fib attacks. This last attack has left me feeling venerable and anxious. I am also wondering if anyone else has had these problems with confusion after a-fib episodes, and if any one else has had problems with warfin. I started out with 5mg and went up as high as 20mg with no results. MY INR remained at 1.5 no matter what I did, but the drug was making me sick to my stomach, so my doctor stopped it., and put me on aspirin (that also causes stomach problems.)
