I can still remember the “shock”
I felt when my doctor said my symptoms were caused by Afib. I thought I had everything from heart failure to liver problems to ???? I was sick and tired of being sick and tired as they say. The mental and emotional panic that sets in with Atrial Fibrillation is intense.
Don’t panic – get help. The following story brought back memories…

Atrial fibrillation doesn’t increase your risk of a heart attack, but it can lead to other serious health issues.
