Recently diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. I just had an echocardiogram and have an appointment in two weeks to see a cardiologist who I believe is an EP as well. I tried another site for support, and felt that it was not meeting my needs for support and information. I have been on Diabetes Connect for almost a month and found it to be a good site, so I am hoping for the same from this site. I do have a question. I have the understanding that I have paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Some of these episodes are not just annoying, but somewhat painful. Is this normal? When do you get concerned enough to call the doctor? And does the painful discomfort part of this get worse? I would like to thank all in advance for being there.
