I have been taking 150mg x 2 of Propafenone daily, for the last 3 weeks, along with Xarelto and 2.5 mg of bisoprolol. The first five days were fantastic, my heart didn’t miss a beat, or race, but then it all started again. Ever since I get prolonged episodes of missed beats, racing and quivering sensations.
I am noticing that this usually starts within three quarters of an hour to an hour after eating, no matter if it is a sandwich, dinner or even one biscuit! I have watched the video that Sanjay Gupta made in conjunction with a gastroenterologist - explaining that there can be a connection between the oesophagus and heart stimulation. However because this happens quite a bit after eating, surely the food must be in my stomach by then, so the AF can’t be triggered by the swallowing action in theory? 😟
