I have been messing around with AF for about 20 months now. The drugs initially prescribed made things worse so I am not on any drugs for now. I seem to only have Af when I eat certain foods. Yet how exact a conclusion that may be, is a real crap shoot. I thought sugar might be one culprit but I recently got the device to monitor my sugar levels and these levels stay in the normal range. Artificial sugar products may be a cause. I avoid these with a passion. Recently, I made two observations that I think may be a cause.
I can eat potatoes normally but sometimes they give me AF. What I think I have determined is only certain brands do this. I have only had this reaction in the local area, Nova Scotia, Canada. When I travel to Europe or the US, I have not had this reaction. I thought it was the carbohydrates going to sugar but my sugar level is fine. Now I am wondering if certain brands have some different characteristic or have pesticide residue. There is definitely something different. It usually takes two or three times eating them before this happens.
Next, I noticed, by accident, that the multivitamin that I used to take caused tightness in my chest. When I stopped taking it, this tightness did not happen. I had a different reaction to another multivitamin that I took years ago. It used to give me pains in my hips as North American peanuts will do. Thailand peanuts do not. So again I am wondering if pesticides or something else is the culprit.
Has anyone noticed any such possible varied reactions? Not eating could be the solution but that would likely have other repercussions. Maybe staying with strictly organic food would help.
