You may want to check & see if you have sleep apnea as well .. Google A-fib & sleep apnea for more info regarding their association, but..

"Researchers from New York University Langone Medical Center reviewed seven studies that included more than 1,000 people with sleep apnea. They found that CPAP use was associated with a 42 percent reduction in the recurrence of atrial fibrillation, an irregular, often rapid, heart rate"..

If it’s recent onset, the sooner you convert, the better. Sometimes it can be done with medication and sometimes you have to be cardioverted..
I had afib when I was in my thirties that was taken care of with medication. It went away in a couple of days.  Too much coffee followed by heavy drinking.  You also may have underlying heart problems so you may need an echocardiogram and maybe heart catheterization
Those with a fib may form blood clots and suffer strokes or other similar problems so you have to be on blood thinners.
Stop stimulants and alcohol for now.
Check your blood electrolyte levels

I check my AFIB with my blood pressure monitor regularly.
