Around this time last year I was diagnosed with AF, Bisoprolol was prescribed, and there weren't any further episodes until 2 days into a skiing holiday about 3-4 weeks later.
The village was at 1400 Metres - the slopes up to 2500 Metres, I felt palpitations at 2AM, pulse was irregular, but not fast and I felt generally well. Still in AF next morning and stayed off the slopes, though felt ok but didn't know it would have been ok, and possibly good to exercise.
It went NSR around 4PM, during first drink and smoke of the day!
Is there a message there maybe??? Like relaxation/chill out therapy?
I've not had an episode since last July, changed the Bsoprolol to Flecanaide in November and seem to be ok with it, I even frequently forget the teatime pill and it's not caused any problems.
I'm going skiing again soon, am wondering if the high altitude will trigger another attack?
Any ideas anyone? Bill
