    Hi everyone I was diagnosed just over 2 weeks ago after 17 years of thinking I was having panic attacks my Gp never sent me for tests gave me diazepam & showed me the door I ended up in hospital with a heart rate of 196bpm I was physically & mentally exhausted luckily drs diagnosed me within 15 minutes..I have been put on Apixaban & bisoprolol but for the last 2 hours my rate has been 175/190 I guess what I'm asking is should I go to hospital or wait for it to pass

    I have had bouts with AFib.

    I had that heart rate (180) one morning and went to the hospital emergency. They did not mess around but took immediate care of me.

    I would go to the er—or urgent care at a minimum.
