I just realized that if I exercise for a few months, my resting heart rate gets into the low 50's. This is when I am more prone to AF episodes when awake or asleep. When AF starts and I immediately exercise for 5 or 10 minutes my heart rate increases and the AF stops and stays stopped maybe for a long time. I do not take any medication and have no other known health issues.
I am wondering if exercise is a negative for me; since if I am active, just doing minor things, my heart rate stays above 60 and I don't get AF. Maybe if I exercise less, my resting heart rate will be in the high 50's or low 60's and I will be less prone to AF. Or this is just AF creep??
As I learn more about AF, I become more aware of what to notice.
Anyone else notice anything like this?
