My AFIB came first. My lung doctor told me, my lungs were not doing well, thus the new inhalers that followed & shortness of breath increased along with AFIB. Of course I stopped both, but my SOB was worse so I was put back on Spiriva & Predisone. I had to still use Pro Air occasionally, but it made my AFIB worse, so now I try not to use it, but I get out of breath walking from room to room which can’t be good.
I got my heart monitor today & the nurse suggested I take Albuterol To see for sure if I’m allergic to it.Cant say I’m thrilled about this idea, but it would be nice to know for sure. Does anyone have suggestions?

@woozy745– Oh, boy I think that you will have to wait until your heart monitoring is finished. I think that since your heart sped up with albuterol and you didn't have a severe reaction it might do well to use it, at least a few times. My husband is in his last week of wearing his. They wanted him to exercise, which started his problem, at least that's when the symptoms showed up.
How long do you have to wear your monitor?
