I just want a bit of advice I started with paf after having pneumonia 5 years ago. I gave up alcohol as I found if I had a few drinks Friday and Saturday night I used to wake in the middle of the night with tachycardia then flip into af and then end up in Resus having Iv verapamil.
I then used to start just having a glass of wine in the day and I was ok with this. I found my triggers was dehydration caffeine and alcohol. I gave up alcohol when I got pregnant and after having my daughter ( now 2) haven't had a drink since as I darnt.
I haven't had an af episode for 3 years I'm on verapamil but don't always take it as I forget.
Would it be stupid to try a drink again ? And why can some people drink yet others it's a trigger.
I read an article on here regarding aspertame abs links with af I used to drink 4 cans of Diet Coke a day I wondered if this now caused my af and not the pneumonia.
Any advice would be great
Many thanks julie
