for those of you who go into AFIB, what do you do? any suggestions ? just sit down and put your feet up? I hate this..sorry, it just gets to me

This is very specific to the individual - some people like the feet up approach - others like to sit uprite in a chair. Some people do not really feel any difference no matter what they do.
Good luck - BIG HUG.

Me again Cynthia,
Been in and out of A-Fib since August 6. It stinks. First time being in A-Fib too.
That is why I am learning to not do anything. Rest is all I could do. I am just totally exhausted all the time. It is like someone just zaps my energy.
Resting just aggravates my arthritis so I can't win for losing. Oh well the cross life has given me to bear. :roll: I just try to do it with a smile and a joke. :lol:

I'm sorry to hear that you continue to wrestle with those A-Fib issues. I wish i had some advice for you. Hang in there and i'll be thinking about ya. ;)
Virginia, you have a great attitude!

Sorry too for you having to deal with a-fib ( the non stop dancin marathoner- I named it that ). I had such a hard time with it also and found I had to rest like you said , feet up and read or watch TV to distract myself. It was so exhausting. I know it varies with everyone. When I had it I had that Catherine Hepburn head shake back and forth and I felt like people could see it. I was glad it was only a short duration.
Please feel better and I am thinking of you.

You too, thanks for the compliment. Boy I am going to have a swollen head hanging here.
Going in Monday (20th) to have a moment with God :shock: ..... :lol: you know to test the unit. Dr. M. said to do it so I am. Hopefully all will go well then I can plan my next trip to HCM center.
Going crazy going in and out of A-Fib but nothing to do but deal with it. It really is giving me an attitude though. Thank goodness I am from THE BRONX..... :lol:
