I've been having flutterings of my heart for almost a year and put it down to stress/wine/chinese food .. in fact anything apart from my heart! On Saturday I was feeling a bit more 'fluttery' so popped into the local hospital walk-in centre and whooosh ........ I was taken to A&E as my heart rate was all over the place - once it hit 173!! I was tagged on monitors, bloods taken, xrays and a drip and after an all night stay was told I have AF - yep I was shocked!! So sent home with baby asprin and Bisoprolol and told to lay off caffeine. Now I have loads of questions I didn't think to ask.
Can I drink wine (I only have a glass or two at weekends) can I exercise (walking is my thing) can I just carry on a normal or do I have to avoid certain things - lifting, rushing around, chocolate or bungy jumping (only joking)?
Hope someone can help me ........ oh and thank you
