Is she on any treatment? If she is suffering from 10 long years without treatment then it is worst. Get her checked and get her proper traetment dear.

You need to see a good cardiologist, there are various medications for this, it is better to see a cardiologist and as per advice to take treatment. I think it will be settled through medications

you need to consult a cardiologist. now a days electrophysiological studies which maps the conduction system of the heart is possible in all metro cities. if on that study if they find out an aberrant pathway then a RFA will give permanent cure.

hello. was wondering if i should be concerned. my mother has atrial fibrillation as was given digoxin and metroprolol a few weeks ago. a cardiologist that checked her two days ago said that her heart rate is to slow & that those drugs weren t helping (she was feeling dizzy upon exertion...i.e walking 2-3 mins). now her heart is racing (approx 100-105 bpm and i m concerned. she says she feels fine but does this mean she s at increased risk of heart attack or stroke?

I am 23 3 weeks ago my heart rate was normal 70-80 beats per minute. Now my heart rate has been between 50-60 beats per minute for the last two weeks. I am not athletic the only thing that i can come up with is i just got off of clonazepam ( a benzodiazepine ) could that cause the decrease in my heart rate or should i go get it checked out at the hospital? I do not have palpitations, but do feel tired..
