I am a male aged 66, I was waiting to enter a roundabout when another vehicle ran into the back of my car, the driver was accelerating at the time as they thought I had moved off, I was in shock for a few days and have suffered with whiplash since for which I am getting physio. during a visit to my doctor last week she discovered an irregular pulse and suggested an ecg which I had yesterday which showed up the afib. I take medication to control my blood pressure, I have regular bp checks and have had an ecg in the past few years which showed no problems, so the afib is something recent and I am wondering if it could have been caused by the accident. Oh my lovely partner Joanne has afib and had a mini stroke last year, she is on warfarin so I expect I will be too once I see my doctor on monday. thank you and I look forward to your comments.
