Unfortunately afib returned again early this morning. My last episode was in December 2018 as I’ve totally changed my diet and have gone teetotal. Last night I made a lovely spaghetti bolognese with a bottle of red wine poured in as well as a couple of herbs etc. I’ve made the exact same sauce using the same recipe for years. I’m assuming that as the red wine alcohol content boils off this couldn’t have caused my problem or could it. We had our dinner around 6pm and the afib occurred around 5am the next morning. I was sleeping on my left side though but have been sleeping on that side consistently over the last 18 months. I was prescribed pill in the pocket so took the tablets as advised by my cardiologist. Took one immediately then another one hour later and the final 100mg one hour after that. I’m pleased to say that I reverted to NSR around 10 mins after the final flecainide tablet.
I’m racking my brain to think what could have triggered it. Any views or similar experiences I’d be grateful. Thank you
