I just got back in the house from the hospital where I have been all weekend after being diagnosed with AFIB Friday. My heart was racing, was having trouble breathing, was sweating badly, and was having chest discomfort. I decided to go to the ER just as a precaution and they broke the news to me even after the symptoms went away the monitor reading still wasn't good, so I was transferred to another hospital for admittance. I was put on diltiazem (CARDIZEM CD) and told that if this didn't help I would be shocked to get my beat regular again. I have plenty of booklets, and information on this. SInce I have left the hospital I have been scared to eat , sleep , or drink. I'm 37 and now I feel like I'm at the end of my road, like the littlest thing can trigger this and have terrible consequences. But since I am use to being on the net and active in different forums I decided to find one for this. Because some of the things I read conflict with what was told to me by the doctor. He says I can moderately drink , the documents say nae, he says I can eat as usual the documents say change my diet , he says I can continue to exercise but that usually makes my heart race and I'm afraid to do that...............I just needed a place to vent cause I feel if they aren't going through it no one understands So here I am ......................and by the way my name is Lance, I'm from Washington D.C. and I have a AFIB !!!!!
