19. Atrial Fib. please help!

Hey, my names Pat and I went to the hospital a year ago with atrial fib. I don't take medication for a fib, but I do take medication for extra heart beats(Metoprolol). I was just prescribed this after having a stress test, 48 hr heart monitor, and a 24 hr urinary test done. My doctor seemed confident that this was all I had to worry about, but I am still having dizziness, especially upon lifting weights. Also, I still get headaches frequently(which I had hypothesized was due to my extremely fluctuating blood pressure). Furthermore, for the last 2 to 3 months or so, i've had constant congestion that I pull from my lungs. It's not a copious amount of congestion, but I still get congestion throughout the day. Also, I have had chest pain that has been on and off, but of late my chest pain feels more "muscular" rather than it dealing with my heart directly. I have had a slight amount of pain in my chest when swallowing.

A couple things to take into account:
-It is pollen season now. However I am not affected too much by the pollen itself.
-I have a very busy school schedule which could account for the headaches(tension possibly);however, my headaches will, a lot of times, choose one side of my head to hurt.
-I've read a good deal about different sicknesses/diseases of late, so the paranoia of cancers might drive me to exaggerate the symptoms that I feel if they're relating to a cancer of some sort.
