I started with Afib about 24 years ago, but was told that it was nothing to worry about. In April this year, I finally had an ECG and was diagnosed properly, and sent home with a wheelbarrow full of pills.
Recently I was talking to my brother in Holland (whom I don't speak to very often) and he told me that he had recently been diagnosed with Afib too, and was due to go for an ablation very shortly. We both recalled how our father would have to rest in his chair for a couple of days after doing strenuous or lengthy physical work. He lived until he was 96 unlike his father who had several strokes and died in his fifties. I am 69; my brother is 71. neither of us has any children. Is it hereditary?
