87 year old female had an EEG. I have a pacemaker and a-fib. Within 12 hours my a-fib started. Should I have not taken the EEG test ?

From this study (2 months ago):
After 30 years of PVCs (irregular heart beats, tachycardia to bradycardia), I was put on 100 mg of Amiodarone. Almost a year later, I have no arrhythmia, but I have typical whorls on my cornea, mild wooziness, graying skin, chest pressure (no pain), and trouble concentrating. I am wearing Bi-pap for both types of sleep apnea (somewhat controlled), with tachycardia waking me up, presumably after apnea event. I am checked regularly by chest X-ray, pulmonary test, and blood test for thyroid involvement. I take 1 baby aspirin and 1 multi-vitamin, daily. I am hoping there is another drug for PVCs with fewer side effects. I am a male, 77 years old, in good shape, physically, with few ailments, otherwise.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have had bypass surgery twice. Triple in 1984, quadruple in 2009. After the 2009 bypass, I developed atrial fibrillation, low pulse rate and diabetes. On Jan 4th, I saw my doctor for flu symptoms. He prescribed a Z-Pack which I took from Jan 5 - 9, 2013. On Feb 19, 2013 I collapsed in a grocery store from a condition called by my cardiologist as Sudden Cardiac Death. When the event happened, I went out cold with no warning and no recollection. I happened to be 10 ft. from a veteran CPR instructor and the store I was in was less than 2 miles from the hospital. EMS used their defibrillator 5 times to get my heart pumping again. Last week I saw on the news that the FDA had issued a warning to physicians regarding prescribing Z-Packs to patients with Atrial Fibrillation, Slow Pulse and diabetes. I have all three. I looked it up on the internet and was astonished to see the many warnings from the NEJM, AMA, FDA and others. This was the first Z-Pack I had ever taken and the Sudden Cardiac Death took place within 5 weeks of taking it. I want to know if the two are related.
