This is probably a random situation; but this is what we bring up on this site which makes the site so valuable to many of us.
By accident, I noticed that if I slept on my back without a pillow, I did not have AF episodes and far less missed beats. I used to only get AF an hour or so after I went to sleep. I wondered why. Maybe in some way the vagus nerve is impacted. I have a benign cyst on the back of my neck, which was removed once but has returned, so maybe something happens because of this. If my heart attempts to enter into AF at night or during the day, I tried pressing, with the tips of my fingers, on the back of my neck next to the spine, for about 30 seconds. This stops the AF almost immediately and keeps it at bay for this episode at least.
I went to a chiropractor to see if my upper spine may be an issue where the vagus nerve exits. He said he was not knowledgeable on this but he did treat one patient for something else and it stopped his AF. This person's AF has not returned after two years. The chiropractor said that he would research AF and get back to me if he thought he could help. I have not heard from him yet. I will post on what he tells me. He said, being out of alignment, can have many health implications so there could be a reason to check this.
I will also talk to a plastic surgeon about the cyst.
I do not take medications so this could be a factor if you are on medications.
I was wondering if anyone else has had any experiences such as this.
