I am 27 years old, 140 lbs, and have been diagnosed with Lone Afib for 6 years now. Had 3-4 episodes around age 21 due to heavy drinking and doing P90X (weight lifting) for a few days which triggered Afib. Had 2 cardioversions and both were successful. Have been on 50 mg Metoprolol & baby aspirin ever since.
I have not had an Afib episode in years. However, I avoid alcohol, caffeine, any kind of strenuous physical activity, etc. and I must say my quality of life has been greatly effected. I've had doctors tell me they wouldn't recommend ablation because I've only had a handful of episodes and Afib is harder to ablate than say SVT. I just am tired of never being able to do anything fun without fear of an Afib episode. I read all this stuff on here about how Afib only gets worse over time, and also see stuff saying if you're going to have an ablation its best to have it done early to have the best chance of fixing.
Anyone have any advice for me? Also have been diagnosed with Sinus Tachycardia since age 12.
