Need help with a fib.
Since a change of medication a few months ago I am generally doing well except... I have had two of the longest episodes of a Fib that I have ever had. The first lasted 15 hours and the one last night was 12 hours.
All night long my chest rocked around like it thought it was at a Saturday night dance. I finally converted back to normal rhythm about 11 this morning. What a relief!!!
My question is this. Does anyone have any special coping techniques they use when in a long stretch of a Fib? If you do I would really appreciate it if you could share them.
I am not big on drugs but I did take a 0.5 Lorazepam about 10 last night and another at about the same hour this morning. I don't think they are doing anything for the a Fib but maybe smoothing me out a little bit and allowing me to sleep. The trouble is when this is all over I am totally exhausted.
I am wondering if some sort of relaxation techniques or something else might help. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
After reading this I want to clear up one point. I have had a fib for about 15 years so this is not new. These are just two of the longest ones.
After about 4 years of being a member of the PM club I still enjoy this site and visit it daily before retiring in the evening.
Wishing you all well,
