It sounds as if you have had a reaction to the flu jab which has raised your body temperature. This in turn could have irritated your heart and you may now be having a mixture of NSR, ectopics and possibly short runs of AF which together may explain the lower than AF heart rate.

If you don’t feel better, it might be an idea to ask your doc for advice. Usually, taking things easy for a while will improve matters - fingers crossed for you.

Thanks Much appreciated

I had the flu last year and my AF was much more active during the 5 days I was ill in bed (proper man flu) as mentioned it's probably down to the side effects of the virus upsetting your body.. Hope you feel better soon.
