Hi, I am a 38 year old male who has had PAF for 2 years on and off, I have had 2 episodes in last 12 months which required A and E and 2 further where pill in the pocket was successful. I practice Yoga and have cut out caffeine, alcohol and strenous exercise. My condition is clearly linked to an over-production of adrenaline, stress and anxiety- I worry about it happening, it happens etc. I take 2.5mg of Bisprolol (sometimes 5mg) which in the main works well but I am keen to get to the root of the problem which is the anxiety. I am pretty sure that if I can get on top of the anxiety I can also get on top of the PAF and that I can manage it. I have been struggling in the last week and am keen to not go down the route of SSRI's or similar and thus have been referred to a CBT/Mental health professional to explore this further but wanted to find out if anyone else had tried similar methods/routes? Any advice around this would be greatly appreciated.
