10. “Can I drive my car if I have Atrial Fibrillation?”
In general, yes. With most types of A-Fib you can drive safely.
But if your episodes of A-Fib cause dizziness, you need a driving plan. As soon as you feel the beginning of an episode, pull off to the side of the road and stop the car. Put on your car’s hazard lights. Wait there until the episode passes.
If this happens often or if your episodes of A-Fib last a long time, you may have to stop driving entirely.
