Atrial fibrillation (AF or afib) is the most common irregular heartbeat and is characterized by heart palpitations, dizziness, and shortness of breath. This progressive and debilitating disease can lead to stroke, heart failure, and Alzheimer's disease, and can double your risk of death. Afib takes a physical toll, an emotional toll, and a financial toll on those who are living with it—not just the patient, but the family, too.
If you wonder whether you are at risk for atrial fibrillation, or whether you might have it already, or if you want to know how to manage afib now that you have been diagnosed, then you have come to the right place. StopAfib.org is here to help increase your knowledge about afib, to help improve your quality of life if you are living with it, and to help you avoid an afib-related stroke.
