Just pondering this thought…. my own experience with PAF over the last 6 months suggests that my biggest trigger is TIME.
I go into AF every week. It’s normally exercise, stress or alcohol that tips me over the edge, but only after a period of 5-7 days after my last episode.
Similarly, I can selfcardiovert with exercise, but only after I have been in AF for 24 hours or more.
Seems like there is something about my AF that requires a build up / break down of something brought about by the passage of time.
Does this make sense to anyone?
In other news, I have my first ablation in 6 days. Feeling a strange mix of terror and hope.
