I havn't posted on here for just under a year, but i have a question to ask and this is the best place to get answers.
I had an ablation at the end of January 2017. My heart had settled down, without the racing heartbeat and i gradually decreased from many ectopic beats a day to a couple.
Then after 3 years of my dad fighting cancer and being by his side every step of the way, i watched my dad slowly fade away until he passed away in mid October. I was extremely close to him and it was/ is the most traumatic period of my life, i am heartbroken and with that my ectopic beats have returned. I am again aware of my heart and the thump in my chest many times a day.
I am aware that grief can also be physical, but please can you let me know if stress/grief can cause your heart to get worse and whether it would be a good idea return to the doctor to get a check up?
Any thoughts, experience or advice would be greatly welcomed.
Thank you so much X
