How do you all know when you're in AFIB and how long it's. lasting? I have an Apple Watch that allows me to check for AFIB, but otherwise I wouldn't know.

I have AFIB at least several. times a week (can't tell at night) often for several hours, even more.

My doctor says taking Xarelto is enough protection against stroke, as it prevents clotting.

I've never been advised to go the hospital for AFIB. Why? Very confused by all the different advice.

Afib for me is absolutely unmistakable with racing pulse and a wild, terrifying irregularity I have heard described as “kittens playing roughly in your chest.” Hard for me to imagine having an AFib event without immediately knowing it, and it would definitely awaken me if it occurred while sleeping.
