Palpitations 4 months after ablation

4 months after my second ablation I am in sinus rythm but am experiencing horrible palpitations that can last for days.
When I am not having a palpitation, I feel great, when having a palpitation I feel awful.
The palpitations seem to start when I am relaxing.

Should I be worried about this?
Is it likely to go away?

I suffered from permanent atrial fibrilation.
I have now had 2 ablation procedures.
After the second procedure, my consultant put me on amiodarone to help train my heart.
This caused a side effect that has caused me to have a slightly abnormal throid where the thyroid stimulating hormone is approx 14 (norm is less than 4.5). I have now been off the amiadorone for 2 months and throid does not seem to be improving.
The consultant has asked me to wait for 3 more months before checking this again.

I am not sure if I am experiencing the amiodarone keeping my heart in rythm while my heart wants to go back into afib or if my heart wants to be in sinus rythm and the abnormal thyroid is causing the palpitations ...

Re: Palpitations 4 months after ablation

What meds are you on to prevent your Atrial Fibrillation from spreading chaotic signals into your ventricles? Atrial Fibrillation commonly causes heart rhythm or heartbeat problems, such as palpitations, ectopic beats, tachycardia, etc.

Like you, I have permanent Atrial Fibrillation, 24 hours per day. It never goes away, but at least it seldom significantly interferes with my life or my health. For me Digoxin works very well at limiting the ventricular irregularities commonly caused by A-Fib.
