Apologies for length of this post but I'm just sitting at home worrying ....It's three weeks since my ablation for AF,atrial flutter and I think AVNRT (was spaced out when they told me what they have found and ablated) and apart from being pretty exhausted and a fast/bumpy heart at times, I've been ok. Last couple of days though I've been experiencing really bad indigestion or something like indigestion..... A really sharp, pinching and persistent pain around my rib cage (where your bra goes!) and a sort of uncomfortableness in my central chest area. I wondered if it was Xmas over indulgence, but despite being sensible yesterday, it still came on about 7pm and is with me now. This pain coincides/alternates with sharp stabbing pain in my heart which takes my breath away and makes me wince...... I've convinced myself now that there is something really wrong but don't want to alarm my family by going to A&E . It does pass but comes back...... Anyone else experience anything like this? I did have the occasional angina type pain pre ablation, but never this persistent nor have I suffered with indigestion before no matter how much I scoffed.....Thought my worrying was over
