I had my 6 monthly consultation with my EP and with my Gastroenterologist back in early December.
My nausea continues but not as bad as it has been.
Yesterday I had a gastroscopy in which they diagnosed a hiatus hernia and also took two biopsies. No specific info right now and in reality it was a matter of enlimination of other possible causes. I still have the view the the nausea is very much heart related.
The Nausea iss now at its worst first thing most mornings. I wake feeling a fluttering but not AF feeling, in my heart. This is coupled with severe headache and nausea combined.
At my meeting with my EP in December he was of the opinion that my symptoms were possibly the result of sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea is a known trigger for AF and back when I had many more episodes of AF I did a personal study over 6 months and found that during my period of analysis 56% of my AF started when I woke or during the night. Even now I wake in the night often feeling a need for an oxygen mask.
For this reason my EP referred me to the Respirator Consultant at my hospital and consequently I am going in to hospital on 30th January for an 8 hours sleep study.
This morning I woke with the most wretched headache, nausea and heart wobbles not helped by the deluge of responses to my post yesterday regarding the dreaded controversial "A" subject.
I am hoping that maybe the study will reveal something and that they can offer me a solution to these problems.
On a good note it is now a long time since my last abalation and the episodes of full blown AF have been very short, few and far between.
