Hi All, I'm new to this site. I was first diagnosed with AF 4 years ago. I've been lucky in that I normally only get 3 or 4 episodes per year. I know that binge drinking will do it (Christmas party), but I also play squash 3-4 times per week and sometimes this will bring it on. Very sary when it happens, heart rate can reach 185 (I've just turned 56 by the way) and it lasts anything up to 12 hours. On my last episode, 3 weeks ago, I was hospitalised. Had to undergo an Angiogram as they noticed something strange on the ECG. Ended-up being diagnosed with mild CAD. Now I'm really scared of any exercise. I've gone from 4 games of squash per week to nothing. Going a bit stir crazy on the settee. Are there any other squash players on here who can reassure me?
