Hi Dr Phil.
Yes, I have had plenty of Atria Fibrillation, but it has been under control for a couple of years with the bisoprolol.
I take the warfarin to keep my blood a bit thin and to lessen the likelihood of a stroke when Atrial Fibrillation leaves a dead pool of blood in the Atrium? The bit of my heart where it is pumped from. I have a machine, american, for checking my blood INR. I live in a place called Karabakh, where medicine is deeply primitive. Thus my question to you, as I have been having a nasty time since stopping smoking 5 weeks ago. I was a heavy smoker, 2 packs a day. I wake up very early every morning with fibrillation and moderate diarrhoea. I want to have an idea if this is likely the result of stopping smoking, or whether I should take it seriously.
