Is Afib ever cured?

Thanks for the info Colleen. It took me awhile to understand what afib is all about. I have been living with it for about 2 years now and don't know what causes it for me. I know at times if I am exercising or walking it can start up but hate to say that is the cause because so many articles tell you to do that to prevent it. I do have hyperthyrodism but it is very mild. I cannot say I know if the afib would have happened anyways or if walking has caused it. That is why I want to learn more. I would take medicine if I knew it would stop it but that doesn't seem to be the case for me. My episodes scare me. I have a heart rate monitor and it goes to 208 and can take 2 hours to get back to normal. I really find it difficult to deal with. Thanks again for the articles to read.

Hi, I have Afib for last three years. It is well under control with Tikosyn (generic Dofetilede). You can ask your doctor if you can try it. It has to be given in specialized doctor’s supervision. Get admit in hospital and stay three days to take this medicine under doctor’s control. It is a risky medicine but I am okay with it. No harm in getting professional advise.
