Atrial Fibrillation

HIPPO

Your heart skips a beat, or perhaps it beats faster. There’s a fluttering in your chest. Your breath comes faster. Your knees feel weak. Is it love?

Alas, no. Put away your poetry books: these are all symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation, otherwise known as AF or AFib.

Allergies or strep?

It’s sum­mer time here in San Anto­nio, and while that means soar­ing tem­per­a­tures and kids out of school, it’s also allergy sea­son. We’ve writ­ten before about what causes aller­gies and some ways to com­bat them, so I won’t go into too much detail about that here. What’s con­cern­ing is that we’re start­ing to see some cases of strep throat mixed in among peo­ple com­ing in for their allergies.

You can mud­dle through allergies on your own (or we can help you if you’re really mis­er­able), but strep needs extra attention.
