Hi there all and Happy New Year!
I have a few questions I’d like to put to the Forum and see what your experiences have been. I’m awaiting an ablation for PAF which is supposed to be this month but I’ve not heard as yet so I assume they could call me at a weeks notice? In the meantime I have been doing lots of reading and I do believe that GERD as well as stress is a big player in my AF. (I was the one that thought it would be a good idea to get a builder in just before Christmas!) So my questions are:
1) Has anyone who has had to start Omeprazole noticed a drop in their arrhythmia/ectopics. I read a study that put patients on omeprazole for 2 months prior to ablation and they seemed to have good outcomes. (I usually don’t take omeprazole regularly but this Christmas got the better of me)
2) Has anyone tried acupuncture for Af? We all respond differently to just about everything but I was just wondering if it was worth a try? I have it for back and neck issues in the past and it worked well.
I look forward to hearing from you....
