Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Review of someone taking flecanaide with digoxin
Has anyone taken both flecanaide and digoxin together
- In having a-fib, can one use xarelto along with temador for brain tumor treatment
Both drugs lower platelets, is using Xarelto unwise
- Is cardioversion safe for someone who has cervical stenosis
I have cervical stenosis. C3 thru C6 are unstable and under doctors care. Is cardio version procedure to correct atrial fibulation safe for me to do have done?
- Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)
SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!
Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

I took 6 pills a day for a week, have been off medication for several days, but A-Fib symptoms continue.

- Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Turmeric and atrial fabrillation
I am a "health nut" who has always avoided any and all tobacco and alcohol, am on no medication, am on a reasonably purer diet (organic foods etc.,) and daily take and assortment of vitamins, minerals and a few herbs like garlic and saw palmetto. I had recently began taking therapeutic doses of Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties in both powered and capsule forms--(powdered form for approximately two to three weeks--one teaspoon twice daily; capsule form for approximately three or four days--one capsule twice daily.) On the day in question, I took one teaspoon of the powered form of turmeric with a late lunch and left off the capsule form. I jog/walk two or three miles intermittently and roughly twice a week. Into the second mile of a three mile jog/walk that night,I experienced an unusual weakness and fatigue, stopped after the second mile and pulse was over 200. I had sweated a lot and after resting a while, I walked the third mile back home and showered. I was unable to sleep. My heart was in atrial fibrillation which was diagnosed hours later at the local Medical Center ER. Heart rate was fluctuating in the 150-170 range and was brought down to 100-120 range with I.V. medication but stayed in that range. Exactly 11 hours after its beginning and with virtually no sleep for over 24 hours and after drinking only water but with very little food and no vitamin or Turmeric consumption, immediately after standing up for the third time in four or five hours to go to the bathroom, I suddenly converted back to a normal heart rate which is 60 to 70 beats a minute and was released from the medical center seven hours later. Plan to stop taking all forms of Turmeric.
- Atrial fib and ibs, is there a connection?
I felt wonderful, after a good night sleep and a nice breakfast. Took my heart medicine. Took off for an hour shopping and the A-Fib began with a vengeance and lasted five hours.
During the time, interestingly, I had continuous IBS. If I had not used butter (an IBS trigger) on my toast that morning, would have had an episode at all? I wonder if there isn't a connection, one that I might be able to control to some extent. This is worth trying!
- Hydrocodone and a-fib
After having two strokes and was given pain and burning on my right side but still had full use of limbs and speech, memory etc. That was in 2003 and I still have the pain and burning in my larger muscle groups every day, every hour of the day. I have tried the many different pain management programs and acupuncture. Went to a pain specialist and just increased his annual salary, as most are usually like Anesthesiologist supplementing their income. He tried me on Lyrica up to 600 mg. per day. It did absolutely nothing for me, I may as well have taken M&M's. Lyrica is very expensive as well, even after insurance my part was $75. Then I told my neurologist I needed something for the pain and discomfort just to take the edge off of my constant discomfort. He put me on Oxycontin 5 mg. It helped me to be more sociable and comfortable during the day. Then he and some others are arrested for passing out to many Rx's. I had to go to my primary care doctor and he gave me Hydrocodone. It helped also but in time I thought it was not good for my health and took myself off of them.
In a couple of months not on anything I had A-Fib that would not convert in the emergency room, or after two attempts at cardio vert. I was put on Amiodarone to lower heart rate but still had the A-Fib. My heart went back into normal sinus rhythm on it's own. They had put me on Xarelto blood thinner (also expensive). I had to have a hernia repair and found out Xarelto works to good at thinning blood as my surgical site would not quit bleeding after two weeks. I stopped taking them before the surgery. My surgeon said it was a problem for surgeons. Surgeries took longer to complete because of the bleeding. My primary care doctor put me on Aspirin daily (I take 2 325 mg. Bayer's daily). I still am out of A-Fib and my cardiologist say's I am doing extraordinarily well. Now I take just 1 Amiodarone tablet a day, and walk daily. I came home on oxygen and now have sent it back to the health care outlet.
Bottom line is I think me being on Hydrocodone caused it. I still am in pain daily and more so when the weather is changing. It is tough sleeping at times, but I am not in A-fib. Someday they will be able to address the pain, without the side effects.
God bless you all.
