AF triggers any help please: since late 2012 have had AF ( now 8 events): 1st trigger eating pastry quickly following brisk walk uphill 2weeks after strange virus which wiped all energy and produced palpitations.
Associated with Acute Anxiety a culmination of major close family members illness including bereavements most recent my father 3 months ago.
Each of the AF events have responded to Sotalol 40-80 mg 'pill in the pocket' Did try taking it 40mg twice daily for about 4 days but it nearly floored me couldn't function emotionally physically terrible sleep.
Have seen Cardiologist had Echocardiogram 24 hr BP all normal which was reassuring!
So does anyone else have eating as a trigger and possibly the mechanism of swallowing too quickly when the heart is ' primed' with in my case post viral or anxiety as further triggers.
