Hi. Just been on a cruise for 2 weeks and for the best part I have been well apart from one evening when we went to the onboard show, like we had on a few previous evenings, however this time I was sat closer to the front and in direct firing line of some strobe lighting. Up until getting to the theatre the day had been uneventful and even while sat waiting for the show to start I was fine. Within 2 minutes of the strobe lights starting along with loud music I started to feel very odd. Within 10 minutes I had to leave and noticed my pulse went from 60 bpm to over 130 bpm. Not long after that the irregular heart beat started so I made my way back to my cabin took some flecanaide and bisoprolol and started to feel better within the hour.
It was a very strange event and just wondered if anyone else had had an AF episode start when in an environment with strobe lighting and loud music?
