Hello pinkmist51. Thanks for visiting healthcaremagic.com. Atrial fibrillation
, as you know, is an irregular heart rhythm. In atrial fibrillation the heart is not pumping blood effectively because the top part of the heart (the atria) are just sitting there in fibrillation and the appropriate electrical signals are not making it to the rest of the heart to enable effective blood flow.
Some people can feel when they are in atrial fibrillation and some can not. For those people who can not feel the change in their heart rate
, two of the most common symptoms of atrial fibrillation are severe fatigue
and issues with their respiratory tract
, usually shortness of breath
I understand that you are out of town and do not want to go to a doctor that doesn't know you, however, I would advise you to go to the ER for an evaluation to see if your heart is in atrial fibrillation again.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
