Afib and Stroke – The Unknown Connection

Ever wonder why you read about seemingly healthy people suddenly having a debilitation stroke?  The reason may be a largely overlooked risk factor – Atrial Fibrillation.

Like me, many fail to realize they have or are developing Afib, especially at first.  I though I was just “out of shape” until my doctor noticed the arrhythmia in a routine exam.

The first phase of Afib is usually intermittent or “paroxysmal” Atrial Fibrillation.  This afib “comes and goes”  and may be the most dangerous because a stroke may happen before a person even knows they have afib.

Treatment with anticoagulants can greatly lessen the stroke risk but only if the patient is diagnosed.  Nobody expects to get afib and therein lies the problem – don’t wait until it’s too late.  If you have symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation – get help now…
