Are there any short or long-term implications of getting a cardioversion for an episode of atrial fibrillation? Is it normal to feel fatigue?

Its normal to feel fatigued after a cardioversion, as it is a psychologically and physiologically stressful event, to say the least. That said, there are no known "long term" adverse effects of cardioversion. There are precisely two and only two known major "short-term" adverse effects of cardioversion which occur immediately or within miniutes if they're going to at all- namely the propensity of a defibrillator to turn the skin into spam, and cardiac arrest.
