I got the disease in October 2008 and started on IVIg. It was late December before I started PE and noticed definite improvements on day 3 of PE, mostly in my face! They didn’t discover the AFib until Jan/Feb during a routine EKG visit. I was rushed to the ER where I spent about 10 days in the Cardio ward. I had PE while there too. They had to do elctro-shock to get my heart rhythm out of the dumps… that was a production number lol.

AFib in and of itself isn’t as bad as it may sound. It is quickly controlled with Coumadin/Warfarin or like drugs. Since its a blood balancing act, you would get your blood tested regularly until they get your dosage right… if that’s what you have.
