I am new to this and really don't understand what everybody is feeling. I have had this for a very long time (years) but just recently it has surfaced and I have had this pounding in my chest, A-fib beating all of the time, tightness, coughing, hard breathing at times. tired, weak, blurred vision and a slight soreness in the center of the chest. I went to Urgent care about 2 months ago and they told me to go to the hospital and that they would call for an ambulance for me. I drove myself home, showered and my sister took me to the hospital, where I spent 5 days in there on medications. I have been out and on meds for 8 weeks now, with a doctors appointment coming up shortly. Does everybody feel this bad all of the time? There has to be a way to fix this problem so that nobody has to feel this way for the rest of their lives. I am 73 and very active and this has put a stop to my life style very fast. Taking Xarelto and a-fib control pill. It has not stoppped.
