AF Association

Anybody have this problem

Hi whilst doing some cleaning today I wondered if anyone else has

the problem of arms which feel like they have lead weights in each hand,

I remember before my ablation having the same problem when I had af.

Well Ive no af still only breathlessness on exertion but my arms are so

heavy. Others on here may have mentioned the problem but I dont

remember it. I also notice it when drying myself aftet bathing or any

situation that requires me lifting my arms too much. Would appreciate

any comments.

Me too! I was thinking it was maybe because I needed to exercise my shoulders and arms more as they felt so week. Hands could feel heavy because the arms etc are weak?

Hope you get it resolved x
