Yea. In my case it was a clonidine patch used for BP.

Went in for a followup Wed. Had an event about a week ago where I got off skew on my meds and ended up dumping my BP. Luckily the wife is an RN and the step son graduates from Nursing School this spring and has been working at Oklahoma Heart Hospital. Still took an ambulance ride at 1 AM.... I've got the meds organized now and on schedule (my fault not the docs). Hard headed jarhead. THanks for the comments guys. Now that I've figured out this is fairly common for us old FAGs its taken away some of the anxiety.

I've had this problem as well. After a long period of time on blood thinners they shocked my heart and put me on flecanide and baby aspirin. All good now. I'm waiting for the ablation technology to continue to develop because I hate depending on medications.
It ruined my life for almost a year because I couldn't really run or work out.
I hope you recover soon and keep a close watch on it.
