    Have been feeling off since Friday night. I figured it was just a severe anxiety attack with all we have going on right now. I started monitoring my heart rate just in case I was in A-fib (though it didn't feel like my normal flutters). My heart rate was all over the place (ranging from 55 to 130 within an hour....all while resting). I went in to the ER late Saturday evening. They ran some bloodwork and a few tests and confirmed I was indeed in A-fib but rate controlled (even though it was sporadic it was staying within safe ranges...typically when I have a flutter...(its called AFib with rapid ventricular response RVR) my heart rate will go up to rates between 180-220 and it only lasts a few minutes then I convert to regular rhythm. I've had this most of my life. 5 times since 2012 it didnt go away after a few mins and I had to go into the ER to be put on an IV drip to lower my rate,then I would convert on my own within a few hrs. As I said this time was different because my rate didnt spike as high. They wanted to discharge me from the ER but I didnt feel comfortable leaving without talking to a Cardiologist so they admitted me. The internal meds doc just came in and said Cardiologist will be in later and will discuss our options. They may give me something to force me to convert back to regular rhythm, but depending on what they give me, it may mean that I have to stay another day or two...please say some prayers I convert and get to go home today...I got too much to do to just sit around here and eat terrible food....lol

    Father GOD we thank you for our brother and humbly ask that by the stripes on Jesus back he were healed. Dear GOD please send your Holy Spirit to give peace to our brother. We also ask that you will give wisdom to the medical staff in Jesus Christ name Amen.

    Just talk to cardiologist. Hes giving me a dose of Rhythmol (Propafenone-Antiarrhythmic to make me convert ). It typically takes 4 to 6 hours to convert me (why didnt they just order this for me this morning?)
    He said hes ok discharging me as long as i convert. So now it's a waiting game to see if/when i convert...no promises about staying out of trouble

    That's awesome! Sounds like a scary and unpleasant ordeal; hopefully you're through the worst of it though @OutdoorsFamilyMan.
