Compared to many on here I consider myself lucky. Having said that, I have had to make considerable changes to my lifestyle as I have not been without my problems. One thing that I do is to take my blood pressure on a daily basis (occasionally missing the odd day through forgetfulness). Over the past couple of weeks, my BP has slightly increased to a bit higher than I would like 137/92 ish from what was in the 120s/80s varying. Anyway......
I have not had much of a problem with my Afib with the exception of the odd missed beat for around 2 weeks, having said that, one does not get away with being happy for too long.
Last night I had an Afib episode that bounced all over the place, with a number of trips to the bathroom to pass water, this was @ 4.50 am lasting for around 4.5 hours. Now what I then find is this; Whenever I have one of these episodes and I take my BP later in the day, (in this instance) @ 1.05 pm, it drops down an average of (today) of 116/82 - having done similar many times in the past, ( in many respects - happy days).
So....Would I be right in assuming that the elasticity of my arteries have been widened (albeit temporarily), due to the (haha) workout that my Afib gave my body? does anyone else experience the same?
