It has been seven weeks today since I had a PVI ablation for Afib. To my knowledge, I have only had seven days which have been completely palpitation-free days. I am experiencing occasional brief palpitations almost daily. What I am feeling is a sense of my heart not beating smoothly. I will feel a hard beat periodically. Since my ablation, I have had three Afib episodes. The last one occurred two weeks ago and only lasted two or three minutes. As before the ablation, when I get upset or worried, that's when I have episodes. I think I need some medication to calm my nerves, but my EP doesn't think I need anything. I am wondering if I need to be concerned with the almost daily palpitations or if I just need to relax since I am officially still in the blanking period. Have any of you ever experienced similar occurrences and then was considered Afib free at the end of the blanking period? Also, how long did the fatigue last? I want to get back to walking, but I tire so quickly.
