I have had AF on and off for approximately 19 months. Recently, I had been in AF continuously for 6 months when I underwent my first Cardioversion. This was successful but sadly reverted to AF while I was in recovery, a very short time after.
Approximately 2 weeks later I am back in normal rhythm. Very happy, but I would love to know why this has happened.
I am now trying to avoid stress (as I believe this may be a trigger for me) and keep alcohol and caffeine to a minimum. I am on Bisoprolol and Apixiban, eat a healthy diet and have a BMI of 22.
Does anybody have any advice for staying in a normal heart rhythm?
I would also like to understand the science behind why the heart changes rhythm, if anybody can help.
