General information - Afib after heart ablation
I have afib and have written about it in this group in the past. I am a 73 year old woman and had a heart ablation about 2 years ago. I know the ablation has helped but not ended my afib condiition. I go into afib about 4-5 times a month and sometimes less. My question is a number of times it happens when I am out with family or friends and am having a hard time dealing with it with other people around. Does anyone have any suggestions? My heart rate will go to 200 in less than a minute. I was in a restaurant last night it was packed with people. There was no where to lie down and my car was over 15 minutes away. My understanding is there is nothing I can do. There is no medication I can take that will stop it quickly. Is this true? Any other suggestion is appreciated. Thanks.
