Atrial Fibrillation           
The Beast Arrives

I am a 58-year-old man.  Until last September seven years ago I had never been sick, other than colds and such, a day in my life!  A real tough X-Football playing macho "I don't need to go to the doctor" kind of guy. 
Atrial Fibrillation

I had started to feel run down for a long time, had trouble sleeping, gained some weight, I thought welcome to 50+ you're just getting old...you just need to get your lazy butt back in shape - then it happened.  The "Beast" Arrived.

I began to suspect this was not your run of the mill beer gut inspired, get back to jogging and it will be all right episode.

I could hardly breath, I felt BAD, and my heart was beating faster than I could ever remember - this lasted for days. I could not sleep.  I didn't want to eat. (I knew it was getting serious now)

I thought I was going to die.  I FELT like I was going to die.  The great health I had taken for granted all the years of my life was gone.  Add depression and fear and panic to my symptoms,

I was a basket case!

My wife finally said enough is enough we are going to the emergency room.  I did not argue.  There is a reason God gives us wives to take care of us.

I got hooked up to some monitors and wow! - My heart rate was about 170 beats per minute!!  I could not get my rate up that high if I was running a marathon.  This explained being out of breath, what was going on?  The doctor said Atrial Fibrillation and that pronouncement sent me on my unending quest to find out what that was and how to fight it.

Atrial Fibrillation affects almost 2.5 million people in the U.S.  It is the most common and the most misunderstood - heart condition.  You may have it now and not know.  Sometimes the first symptom is a stroke or sudden cardiac DEATH! 

Afib as I like to lovingly call it can be controlled and even cured and does not have to be life threatening.  "IF" you become educated about the signs of trouble and how to get help.

This is my continuing story - I hope you can benefit from hearing about one man's battle with Atrial Fibrillation and the steps I took to get back to healthy living.
