Hi, my first post on here so I'll start with an introduction:
I'm a 40 year old male and I've suffered from PAF for 7 years. Sometimes I can go for months without it happening then I get several episodes a week for a month or so before it disappears again. They are usually related to strenuous exercise (usually cycling). The 24hr monitors never caught it but after several bad episodes had a ICM fitted last autumn (1 year after being referred!) which finally caught something and AF was confirmed.
As my BP is marginally high I've been but on a ACE inhibitor as the first course of action.
I read that magnesium deficiency can be a factor in AF, as it can for high BP, acid reflux, and insomnia - all things I suffer from. I'd therefore be interested to know other other AF suffers have taken magnesium supplements and whether they helped?
