Hi everyone I'm new to the forum but I have read plenty of posts which have been very helpful and informative.
Thought I would give a quick introduction of myself, I'm a 41 yr old male with Permanent AF diagnosed in Nov 2015, I've since had Cardioversion which lasted two weeks and opted for PAF ablation back on June 7th and all seems to be going fairly well.
I've had lots of side effects after the ablation but all in all i can report an improved lifestyle even after a short period 76 days (as of the 22-Aug).
Before the AF I considered myself to be in great shape and regularly played squash on a competitive but not professional level. Training regimes were tough and took their toll. I have no answers as to why I have AF and what may have caused it and can only guess I over trained or became dehydrated too often as I led a relatively healthy lifestyle.
I'm looking for any hints / tips / tricks on managing the symptoms I'm experiencing after my ablation, mainly late evening I experience ectopic beats followed by a heart in mouth feeling (like going over a bridge quickly in a car) which sometimes lead to the shakes where legs and arms shake like they would if you were freezing cold. They dont always happen in this order but i've had a couple of bad events that have lasted a few hours. I've learnt not to fear these symptoms as the anxiety makes them significantly worse but am hoping to manage them better.
Over to you guys :O)
