During the last two summers I was totally AF free for 5-6 months and have been wondering why that would be.The only thing I think could have helped was the fact that in the summer I wear dresses most of the time. I've always hated the constricting waistbands on trousers, what starts out in the morning as feeling a good fit, tightens as the day goes on. I find more and more people are saying they can't wait to take off their clothes in the evening to put their loose fitting dressing gowns on.
So I'm just wondering whether wearing clothes that become a little snug around the waist, or anywhere else on the body, could contribute towards causing AF attacks. Incidentally, after my cardioversion, 7 weeks ago, I've been wearing dresses as much as I can and haven't had one attack. The last two previous winters I was in constant AF.
Could wearing any item of clothing that's a little tight on our bodies be the cause of AF, even if we may be free of them at night?
What are your thoughts please?
