AF Association

Small episode

Hi I have very small episodes one after another , then nothing for weeks , I don't suffer from high blood pressure ,, but my cholesterol is a bit high , I'm not on blood thinners, just 5m bisoparol, I find if I sneeze I have one but goes back on its own after a few seconds, , it's very scary when it happens , my longest one was my first one which lasted 6 hours , but went back to normal on its own, I've had the monitor on a few times but never had an episode while using it, but a few little ones after I've taken it back ,

So if I read this right you actually haven't been diagnosed with AF due to never being out of rhythm when tested.? Difficult situation and may not even be AF but possible ectopics or just plain fast heart rate (tachycardia). Not a lot anybody can do till you catch on on tape or on an ECG. Anxiety is not helpful either so try not to stress about it.

It's typical that we have holter minitors and capture virtually nothing!!

If you can afford it get a Kardia device. This will capture af episodes and you will have evidence for your doctors

If you have no other co-morbidities are under 65 and male you have a CHADSVASC score of 0 and do not fall under the anti-coagulate window.

I sometimes get a heart flutter/wobble after I sneeze. Assume this is quite normal for those who notice it. Doesn't bother me and it never lasts more than seconds.
