Last week I was due to go and see my EP 30 miles away. I'd been feeling so well and thought I don't want the stress of driving there so postponed my appointment for another 3 months. Very soon after I cancelled my appointment things started to go down hill (I think it was on the very evening that I cancelled it). I became aware of odd heartbeats again and knew something was brewing - how right I was. I ended up having a period of AF and tachycardia, one of the worst ones I've had for about 18 months (heart was jumping in body).
Now my question is: Why does this appear to happen as soon as the reassurance that I'm going to see a professional has passed! It has happened so many times now that it can no longer be thought of as just a coincidence. Surely it has to be me and my thoughts causing my heart to race and if this is the case then there's a chance, that hopefully, I could cure myself by controlling what goes on in my head.
We often talk on this site about having no AF symptoms when wearing a heart monitor. There has to be a reason for that too. Do we create our AF somehow?
What are others thoughts on this?
