Hello to all again , I have been reading your postings as usual with interest.
I would be grateful if you share your thoughts and experience with me.
You may remember that I was diagnosed with PAF a year and a half ago . My AF episodes were every four month or so which lasts about 48hour , were my resting heart rate increased to about 80-85bpm (normal resting heart rate 50-55 as I am on metoprolol and NOAC ). Last Monday I began an AF episode , and it has not gone away ,now nearly 7 days . I do not have any symptoms or discomfort , only notice it by taking my pulse and the monitors on the machines in the gym . Could this be the progression of the PAF to persistent / permanent AF ?
Now that I am not in NSR should I stop exercising or continue my normal gym activity ? My exercises normally increase my heart rate by about 50bpm i.e.~ 110bpm when in NSR and now that I am in AF episode to 130-135bpm . During the latter period I do not feel very much different to when I am in NSR (normal heart rhythm ) while exercising . Thank you for reading my post .
