Atrial Fibrillation at 33 years old!

I went into the hospital this last Thursday for stomachaches and nausea but never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I would end up with heart problems. My heart was racing from 150-180 and had to give me "BOLOS" to increase my blood pressure that was 60/40 in order for them to get it over 100 and them start treating my heart. I am always up beat and too busy to realize and pay attention to my body but after this scare I am making sure I monitor myself. I am now taking aspiring 325mg, and Toprol XL 25 mg. Sometimes I am still out of breath and have to tell myself to calm down but also feel down at times too (like today). My question is now what? I have a follow up with the cardiologist after my discharge from the hospital. Do you think this problem will go away or is forever- what do you recommend for me to do now? Thanks for your time, I am new at this whole heart thing and had no idea but I found your website so any insight you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

I am 33 years old & just got admitted today. They told me I have AFib. My heart was beating fast, something didn't feel right so I drove myself to the hospital.
