Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Pacemaker placement will not correct the atrial fibrillation
Your doctor will need to give you drugs for atrial fibrillation or another option is a radiofrequency ablation but it is unlikely to go with pace maker placement
Feel free to ask if you require any further clarification
If you are satisfied then do leave a POSITIVE RATING (preferably 5 stars) so that I may be credited for my work
Yes symptoms can be mild or none
Alright yes the pacemaker can keep the heart rate within a normal limit and thus serve as a rate control drug. Atrial fibrillation can be silent so you can be asymptomatic in that case
