Dear Loopy,

I assume you mean fibrillation : this is a condition in which the rhythm of the atria has become totally irregular and ineffective, leaving only the ventricles with a regular contracting rhythm. You should have been put on anticoagulants, and you should have been seen by a cardiologist very soon thereafter.If you are still fibrillating, then you must see a cardiologist urgently. He will be able to plan a treatment to try to get you back into normal rhythm again, although it may be too late by now.

There are many dangers and possible complications if the condition is left untreated, so please try to get to a cardiologist as soon as possible.

Ek het die skrywe van loopy gelees en ook gesien dat onreelmatige hartklop nie kan herstel na n tydperk nie. Ek het die al 15 jaar en het besoek by n kardiloog afgele waar hy n angeegram gedoen het en niks met my hart verkeerd gevind het nie.Ek is op Codirone gesit en die het nie met my geakkedeer nie. Ek het met n vriend van my gesels en hy het my na n kardiloog toe verwys en hy doen n veblasi ek hoop ek spel dit rek. Die addisionele klop word met Leiser gebrand en en die sukses is 80%. Ek het ook veneem dat n mens beroerte kan kry met die hart toestant. Ek is nou 58 en ek met sê die maak my vreeslik moeg en kan nie fiks word nie dan trigg die hart in op "AF" en moet dan elek skok ontvang om die weer in pas te kry. Sal julle veblasi aan beveel... Baie dankie vir die geleentheid
Groete
