The cardiologist put me on Elliquis and metoprolol. I had no symptoms like chest pain or shortness of breath. My OB/GYN doctor noticed my irregular heart beat during an exam and did an EKG. That's how I found out about the AFib. I'm 63, and I do have hypertension and a family history of heart disease. I have had a lot of fatigue, but I thought I was just tired from my job (plan to retire soon). Also, I'm woozy in the morning after a BM before I drink my electrolyte water and eat some yogurt. I thought I was just dehydrated or morning blood pressure meds hadn't kicked in yet. I suppose I could have had AFib for a long time and not known it.
