1.don't know what caused the afib, but the drained feeling is probably anxiety. Maybe the afib too. None of us are doctors here, obviously
2. Under these circumstances, if your cardiologist is tellin you he can't see you until September? ...Find a new cardiogist '
I was getting bad palpatations for a couple of days that were similar to what you describe. Hard pounding in chest, for a few beats, then back to normal. Called Dr on the second day, he told me to come right in. They did a full workup, including nuclear stress test that day in his office. AND 24 hour holter monitor. All results normal. It was probably anxiety. But the point is, he generally has a 3 week wait for appointments. In this case, i was in his office 15 minutes after i called.
