Hello again everyone, and thank you for all the concern, info, and insight.
Yes, I am beginning to realize that this can be serious.  As many of you, I am not a fan of MD's.  I think I will make an appointment to at Dr. Whitaker's clinic in Newport Beach, California, I do trust them, and we have friends and  family there. They are the ones who I went to for a second opinion, I wish I could see Dr. D but I have no place to stay if I go there, hotels would run the cost up too much.  
I think I am feeling a bit less jumpy, after three days on extra Mg and fish oil, maybe I am out AF.  I cannot tell when taking my pulse, and our automatic blood pressure meter never reads anything more than 70's.  
Thanks again,
Al Ge

contact the clinic about a possible phone consult.....Dr Nash might be available if Dr D were not available?

asking never hurt anyone, right?

Thanks, Lola, I might just try that.
I went sailing Sunday and got very tired 3-4 times and had to stop,sit and drink water.  We didn't even try to get into the races, I was out of it.  If I was in Afib from 100am Wednesday through 300pm Thursday at the doctor's office and the doc didn't seem to worried about I wonder if it is life threatening for me.  I stopped the Amiodrone Monday morning and have felt pretty good, we worked most of the day in the shop Monday and today, feel good.  I have been on the extra Mg and Fish oil since last Friday, I think I'll try this for a week or so.
Oh, I finally found an article that told me about nattokinase, that someone said they were on, I will try that next.
My wife is upset because I am changing what I am taking, but the doc said that if I were to take the Mg and Fish oil I could stop the Amiodrone.  I am feeling good and seem to have more energy, that is my goal.
Thanks again for the interest.

I take nattokinase, as do a few others on the afibbers site.

Make sure you get a 'certified' version.

One I use is Nutricology nattozyme 100mg [2000FU] NSK-SD one every 8 hours, apparently the night-time one is essential.

Another I've just started is made by USenzymes......... I get that via an internet friend who herself has a clotting disorder and was under the care of Dr Holsworth.

Please search some posts on the afibbers site [esp those by Jackie or Hans Larsen] for more info before taking a leap, and good luck.

Well, I emailed Dr.D about getting a 'telephone' appointment and was told that is not done.  I am feeling so much better without the Amiodrone for the last four days, and just the extra Mg and Fish oil now for a week, that I think I will just try following the diet more closely than I have been and see if I gain my energy and stamina back.

Thanks for all the help, it has been very encouraging for me.

Have any of you with A-fib had problems with swollen legs/feet/ankles/face?

Just curious as my DH had a pacemaker/de-fib appliance put in in Feb. of this year.
He hated being on coumadin so switched to pradoxa 2 months ago.
He was always a hyper kind of guy and now feels like he is in slow motion...its sad because the surgery really changed his life...not all for the better. His device hasn't even kicked in once! He regrets the surgery ... was "paddled" twice..they burned him, too...put on 4 different meds...then switched a couple...now there is no going back.

He is an O-Hunter. He eats my cooking so is following his diet most of the time. I recently convinced him to give up wheat....he cut back on corn. He takes Dr. D's polyvite-O and deflect-O.

So sorry to hear what your DH is going through. It sounds really hard. I was thinking the swollen legs etc. might be due to slow lymphatic system. Just an idea.

Swollen legs can also be a sign of congestive heart failure.  He needs to get rid of the excess fluids.
