Feeling good, four months after my ablation, stacking a ton of logs, changing, then dragging my kayak up a steep incline, after a brisk 50 minute paddle on the sea, seemed like a good idea. I felt better than fine throughout. After the kayak trip we went for a meal where I tucked into a large portion of delicious goats cheese rissotto and ate more than usual.
In bed, couple of hours later, I noticed my heart beat: this isn't uncommon for me but I was concerned by lots of skipped beats. bu-bm,bu-bm,bu-bm, ------,bu-bm,bu-bm,bu-bm,bu-bm,------, bu-bm,bu-bm,bu-bm, ------,bu-bm,bu-bm,bu-bm,bu-bm,------, bu-bm, etc., My BP monitor showed the irregular HB symbol although my heart rate never went above 77 and mostly remained around 60, which is normal for me.
After an hour of reading failed to settle things I took 100mg of flecainide followed by another tablet an hour later as my heart was still regularly missing beats.
Half an hour later the skipped beats had stopped and my BP machine showed normal rhythm. This morning I'm still in what seems to be NSR.
Does this sound like AFib, or will I never know?
I thought about ringing my arrhythmia nurse but don't want to bother her, or stress myself, if I simply became aware of something harmless which people experience all the time.
