Comments from related studies:
From this study (19 hours ago):
First in and out of AFIB 8 mo.ago, then continuous AFIB since then.
On Micadis HCT 80/25 since 1997, then off until 2011 when replacing other BP med. with Micardis HCT 80/25
From this study (7 days ago):
My heart goes in and out of afib mostly at night after I lay down. I can walk a brisk mile and the afib will usually go away.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.
