Hello every body
I'm now 6 weeks post my third ablation (one for SVT and two for A Fib) and I am feeling great. I had a flurry of what turned out to be ectopics about 10 days post op, but otherwise no A Fib, as far as I can tell by checking my pulse regularly, and no 'events'.
So far so good. Even taking two of my grandkids to France last week and the inevitable tiredness that caused, didn't bring on A Fib.
However, a friend of mine suggested I try magnesium citrate for my poor sleeping pattern. I have to say it is much better since my ablations, but still not perfect as I rarely get through a night without surfacing and sometimes simply can't get back to sleep for a couple of hours. But this could just be an age and female thing.
This triggered a memory of a comment on the forum a few weeks ago, so I dug around and found the article by Kahn et al in the Framingham Heart Study trial, which suggests a moderate link between low serum magnesium levels and A Fib.
Does any one have any comments about the use of magnesium citrate and the prevention of A Fib?
