Been away awhile as my social media addictions were getting out of control. This week is my 3 yr anniversary of my relationship with a fib( paroxymal). Ive been on and off flecainide, from daily to " as needed" as PIP. I finally convinced my doc to run an event monitor on me for 30 days to prove ( to me) whether I was having any undetected a fib, as I didnt think I have had any since last spring. Im happy to report the monitor showed no a fib at all!!! I know that can " change in a heart beat", lol... but Im really happy to say in 3 yr the a fib has been less frequent, not progressive. Fingers crossed it continues, maybe a fib will forget my address😉

Thankyou! After I posted this I hoped I hadnt jinxed myself🤣

Shows what the doctors know! They think we don't know what goes on with our own bodies. By the way, did you do anything to keep Afib away for 3 years? diet? exercise? pills? ablation? etc.

Ive been diagnosed with PAF about 3 1/2 yr now, no episodes for the last 14 months. The only things Ive done is what I mentioned. Looking back, I think I have way less stress since Ive retired and Im taking better care of myself. Nothing dramatic but I do know on occaisions when Ive overindulged in high sugar and/ or sodium over eating, I get “ pre a fib” like symptoms so I think diet plays a role.Hubby got me an apple watch so that helps my peace of mind re any asymptomatic a fib. I cannot say what has kept it away. Every night I thank God for my normal rhythm and ask Him to grant me another day of no a fib or any of its friends😉
