I too suffer from AFib and hypertension. I had a heart attack 4 yrs ago at the age of 48 and went into afib when it happened. The doctors think the heart attack was brought on by severe hypertension and that the afib was also brought on by this too. I have had a few more afib attacks since then and I just ride them out since I have a phobia of hospitals and doctors. I was put on metoprolol 75 mgs twice daily and vasotec 20 mgs once a day along with a 325 mg aspirin. I also take 500 mgs of magnesium daily along with salmon oil. I also try to eat more fruit and veges, and I do need to lose weight. I haven't had an episode of afib for over 6 months now. I haven't seen the doctor since then and I've been getting my medication online. I wish I didn't have this fear of doctors, but that's just the way it is. I'm also going thru the loss of my only son who passed away on June 1,2008.

I love him dearly.The problem is ......
