My Afib began causing me problems around November 2015. I had a cardiovert in 2009 and had sporadic problems after that. By November, I was having a great dealof difficulty in doing many things such as working out, going shopping and other every day activities without getting dizzy or unable to catch my breath. While not exactly a shut in, I just was not able or feel like doing many things.
Since I’ve had my procedure in April 2016, many things have changed. I now go to the gym more often, do my own shopping and go to the movies more. I feel better than I have for a very long time. My family says the have even noticed an improvement in my emotional state.
